An overview of the key theme: Learning and Development, which is considered in the AET Schools Standards and Competency Framework.

AET Schools Standards Framework

The AET standards framework support leaders to meet Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) policy and legal requirements and their equality duties whilst complying with the Education Inspection Framework (2019) and the Teacher Standards (2011). They also align with the Head Teacher Standards (2020). 

AET Schools Competency Framework

The framework can be used by staff in schools (5–16) across a range of settings from mainstream to specialist. It is an ongoing self-reflection tool to enable staff to:

  • Self-assess their skills and competencies.
  • Identify priority areas to work on. 
  • Decide which aspects of their practice require further development.
  • Consider their professional development needs.
