Train the Trainers in Advanced Practice – now open!

Applications for the penultimate pathway of the Education and Training Foundation’s (ETF’s) Advanced Practitioner year 4 programme – Train the Trainers in Advanced Practice – are now open. The pathway will be delivered on behalf of the ETF by touchconsulting Ltd and will include our first venture into face-to-face training after 20 months! We are offering up to 25 places to experienced Advanced Practitioners (APs).

You’ll be selected on to the programme as long as you meet the entry requirements. We are looking far and wide for experienced APs with influence and potential within their organisation and a remit to support and develop an AP team. This programme is designed for experienced APs who are (ideally) graduates of the AP Programme; hungry to learn with and from the team and each other, and who are comfortable with the tight timelines, plus time commitment, as well as the self-directed ethos of this pathway.

If you hold Advanced Teacher Status that’s fantastic. If you don’t, that’s fine as it’s not an entry requirement. We are limiting applications to one applicant per organisation. If you’ve got a strong case for multiple applications – because you have multiple sites, large AP teams, and so on – please get in touch by emailing: joss@touchconsulting.net.
