We're currently working on a series of guides to support the whole sector’s engagement in Study Programmes. The guides are based on the hugely successful Advanced Practitioner (AP) Toolkit, which comprises a set of Development Cards and four AP Practical Guides.
The AP Toolkit was produced as part of an Outstanding Teaching, Learning and Assessment programme commissioned by the Education and Training Foundation (ETF) and delivered by touchconsulting and CETTAcademy. It includes Professional Development cards, which can be downloaded from the ETF's Excellence Gateway, and four excellent guides written exclusively for the further education and training sector:
- Facilitating Professional Development and High-Performance Teams Through Situated Learning by Ian Grayling
- Using Coaching and Mentoring to Support Colleagues: Core Principles and Techniques by Jon Thedham
- Creating Spaces to Think in Further Education and Training by Lou Mycroft and Kay Sidebottom
- Coaching and Mentoring in Action: Additional Approaches, Tools and Techniques by Jon Thedham
We’re delighted to announce that Sue Owen-Evans is once again leading production of the guides from the writing to design stages. #StudyGood Communications 2 (released December 2019) will feature more detail about the #StudyGood guides, which will be:
