There are 3 important stages A) what you know, B) what you don't know & C) what you know you don't know.

C is unfortunately often overlooked by those who 'know better'
You missed one. It's the four stages of competence you are looking for.

Don't take it as "bossy" or "knowing better". Just helping you...

But why voluntarily challenge them in their arrogant ignorance? Let them think the are the best. You are not obligated to invest yourself.

I am so sigma.
Honest question; do you teach like you post here?

1. Unconscious incompetence
2. Conscious incompetence
3. Conscious competence
4.Unconscious competence.


Effective teachers are at stage four but are continually open to and engaged in further learning or they would soon be back at stage 1. It's basic really.

Not sure what's arrogant or "sigma" at being good at your chosen profession! How strange to imply you would prefer non-experts teaching.

MC I take it your self- proclaimed sigma thing is your belief you are different to the rest. I have no doubt you are. However it is a mistake to think you are the only one. Effective practitioners, as I'm sure you're aware, internalise the standards and have their own additional extra, all the time ensuring learning is pupil-centric, differentiated forall learners and ensures continual progress is made. If someone, some teacher, is too far from the standard - the mean - then they're in the wrong gig.

Sorry Sandgounder. On my phone, just seen your link.

We sure did. I'd be a very poor Literature teacher if not. All those words. Plays, novels, poems,.letters... best part of the job is facilitating debates which lead to high level cricital supported responses. Joy.

1.4% vs 1.3%. Most would see that as a rounding difference. Anyhow, that projection is based on "diminished fears of a no-deal Brexit,". If there's no deal at 31.12.2020 then their bets for 2021 are off.

Would like to see a source for your London vacancies. ONS only publish all-UK figures and these are down 7% since start 2019.

BTW Daily Mail and Express are not considered reliable sources in the unlikely event you want to share one
I've put the link below. I've long held the opinion that the economic effect of Brexit will be negligible either way. Brexit in theory should give the country the tools it needs to make changes that could really boost the economy, however I doubt any government in the short term will have the courage to do it. The news coming out now just goes to show how wildly over the top many of the doomsday predictions were.

There's been a lot of positive Brexit news over the past week or so. Thousands of EU firms plan to open UK offices after Brexit, job vacancies up 17% in London, the number of new UK university enrollments from EU countries up 2% and the IMF has now predicted the UK's economic growth will outstrip the Eurozone including France, Germany and Italy. Project Fear, eh!? Only 10 days to go!! ��

Are you this way in other informal settings?

If he spiked your interest, how about doing a bit of research yourself.

He hasn't spiked my interest at all. I do a lot of research and am basically sick of certain people continuously making unsubstantiated claims without offering a scrap of evidence then sitting back and saying "Prove me wrong!"

I am sorry, Blueangel, but they can make any claims they wish. Would you like to ban people who disagree with you and don't rush into communication despite your demands and entitlement?

They will, though, if you are sincere and invite the communication. I haven't seen that just now. Nor in your answer to me, so take my reply as a gesture of good will.

Perhaps because she (and I) can't find anything much to verify his claims?

For example University enrolment figures for 2019/20 are not available yet - the 2% increase was the 2018 intake so old news (even if only recently reported) and therefore not linked to recent events.

FWIW the increase (and actually I wouldn't be surprised to see one in 2019/20 either) is more probably due to this being the last time when EU students will qualify for UK government student loans, therefore a pre-Brexit bonus not a post-Brexit benefit.

Apparently there's a fair whack of financial companies that are considering having a presence in London to circumvent regulations post-Brexit but it's not "thousands of EU firms". Mostly will be just a UK outpost so it's not exactly a whole new batch of factories employing hundreds of people. More likely just a mailbox, single office and a desk / PC terminal.
