What does Approaching Standards mean?

A new Approaching Standards level was introduced on 5 March 2021 as a new stepping stone towards Standards Met. If you have done most of the DSPT but have a bit more work left to do, you’ll be able to get credit for the progress you have made by publishing at “Approaching Standards.” To do this, you’ll need to submit an improvement plan saying how and when you will complete the remaining items.

See guidance on Approaching Standards and Standards Met.
