Target and Target Review Worksheets

(2)
Two useful ready made documents to help target setting with your learners. The first template gives an example SMART target with two blank target templates for learners to write in their targets paying special attention to how they plan to achieve them, when they will do it and how we will know it is achieved. The second worksheet/template allows learners who are set targets throughout the year to recall current targets, review their progress and achievement and then set or add in new targets. Great templates to use in tutorial. These worksheets would work perfectly with my target bank resources enabling students to set their own SMART targets with ease.
