Raising Standards Guides available for
Welcome to the
updated and refreshed versions of the Raising Standards Guides.
Produced previously by the DfES Skills for Life Strategy Unit, the
Guides are now the responsibility of LSIS.
We trust the Guides will
prove to be a valuable tool. They have been designed to help you as
teachers, trainers and managers to improve the quality of your work
with learners in literacy, numeracy and language.
We hope the Guides, which are based on
the Common Inspection Framework will help you look at what you need
to do to achieve success with your learners, how you can go about
it and how you will know you have succeeded. Teachers, trainers and
managers often know what they have to do but are not always sure
how to tackle change. Each contextual Guide in the series of
thirteen - eleven available at present - helps to bridge the gap
between understanding generic advice on improving quality and
taking effective action in the learning context or setting that is
specific to you.
The Guides (in PDF format) can be downloaded
from this page. Please be aware that each Guide is approximately
2 Mb in size and may take a while to download
especially on a slow internet connection.
