2. Take account of the varying interests, experiences and achievements of learners and understand how they are affected by a range of developmental influences;

4. Discuss English as a subject at a professional and increasingly informed level; make appropriate links between English and other subjects;
5. Analyse, evaluate and justify the use of a range of strategies and approaches with increasing confidence.
6. Assess and plan for progression and continuity with increasing accuracy and reflect this in teaching and evaluation;
7. Be able to recognise underachievement and respond positively and appropriately to individual and diverse learning needs through the planning, teaching, assessment and evaluation of the subject across all learners
8. Develop secure knowledge and understanding of how ICT can support and enhance teaching and learning in English
