Looking at Tanya Sinden’s blog post ‘Profiling’, about teaching profiling, sort of surprised and scared me.

I know we have to get used to it all (it being linked to our pay scale and professional placements) and hopefully it will be a shared, negotiated process which will enable us to grow as professionals. Our professional placements during our pre-service days should help us get used to it all. What do you think about ‘Big Brother?” Here is an article about it. “Teaching Profiling”.
