We have now signed off our four Advanced Practitioner Practical Guides with the Education and Training Foundation. These will be ready to share with our AP community in November and will be available on the Excellence Gateway for download.
We are delighted with the guides. They are beautifully written and designed, packed full of insightful content, strategies and activities for APs working in the Further Education and Training sector. The four guides go deeper into the content covered on the 3-day ‘Developing Advanced Practitioners’ professional development programme but also serve as standalone guides. Our ambition is the guides will support your practice when working with others to drive quality improvements in teaching, learning and assessment across your organisation.
The Guides are:
- Creating Spaces to Think in Further Education and Training, Lou Mycroft & Kay Sidebottom
- Using Coaching and Mentoring to Support Colleagues: Core Principles and Techniques, Jon Thedham
- Facilitating Professional Development and High-Performance through Situated Learning, Ian Grayling
- Coaching and Mentoring in Action: Additional Approaches, Tools and Techniques, Jon Thedham
And don’t forget the other items in your AP toolkit that many of you are already putting to good use:
