apply new understanding and research findings to reflect on their practice and make suggestions for improvement;
demonstrate leadership in the school context in the area of study;
design, conduct and report on a small-scale research project in the area of study;
use a variety of appropriate methods for collecting, compiling and analysing data; and
apply understanding of English as a linguistic system for planning and organizing effective English language learning.
