Rethinking the role of the Advanced Practitioner

This evaluation of Year 3 of the #APConnect professional development programme for Advanced Practitioners provides an inspiring review of how APs across the country are shaping, driving and supporting quality improvement across the sector.

During year 3 of the Education and Training Foundation’s #APConnect programme, a team of co-researchers from the AP community, along with Dr. Christina Donovan and Dr. Colin Forrest, carried out research into the impact of the programme for those operating in Advanced Practitioner-type roles in Further Education organisations. Their research is available as a guide: Rethinking the role of the Advanced Practitioner in FE.

Purpose of the evaluation

The evaluation engaged with APs from the programme’s virtual Communities of Practice to share and develop quality improvement strategies, as well as evaluate the role that the Advanced Practice modules played in this process.

The ambition of the research team is that the evaluation will shape your practice and inspire you to think about how to get the best from your amazing Advanced Practitioners!
