Abstract: While it is not the intention in this paper to consider the wider literature on the value of generic and accountability standards, it is sufficient to say that their use is contested, especially as a single measure of teacher performance or as the only source used to guide professional learning (Cochran-Smith & Lytle 2006; Darling-Hammond 2004; Morgan 2010; Morgan 2012; Sachs 2003). The major criticism levelled at such standards is that they are a 'top-down' imposed measure by governments and education systems, not a profession-driven 'bottom up' approach in which teachers have ownership of standards developed by them and for them (Morgan 2012).
