Pet is a web based tool for supporting young people in developing Personal Learning and Thinking (PLT) Skills, based on the QCA defined PLTS and Enterprise capabilities. It has been conceived and designed by Matthew Evans, BBC Enterprise Teacher of the year 2007 who was at that time the Assistant Head at Forest School, Berkshire. Matthew is now Deputy Head at Henry Box School Oxfordshire.
Through a process of student self assessment, reflective learning, activities and teacher assessment, PET captures evidence of skills development and enterprise learning. As the student reflects and skills improve, PET promotes increasingly challenging learning and maps the student’s progress, recognising their achievement and personal development.
Individual schools or diploma consortia are able to assess the impact of educational activities through PET, and easily access collated data, within the school or across multiple establishments working on one diploma, to demonstrate the effectiveness of the PLT Skills development or Enterprise learning.
