Skills for Life Network

Last year, ETF funded 15 partnerships to work collaboratively to evaluate the role of Advanced Practitioners. You can see further details here. We are in the process of publishing their case studies which contribute to a growing evidence of how best to design and deploy AP-type roles in support of quality improvements. Do have a read of the first three case studies to be published:

The remaining case studies will be appearing soon on ETF’s ‘Improving Teaching Exhibition’ site

Case Studies

Year 2

Last week, following an application process, four projects were granted some additional extension funding to build on the work carried out last year, and to explore approaches that will build the capacity and sustainability of AP teams. We look forward to sharing findings as the four projects unfold.

This project builds upon ‘Good to Great’ (last year’s project) enhancing sharing of great teaching and learning, collaboratively and nationally.
