There are several resources available to support Advanced Practitioners (AP) which have been developed as part of this programme:
An updated (March 2022) set of cards that aim to support APs to drive quality improvements in teaching, learning and assessment across provision.
The cards can be used when working one to one with colleagues as well as with small groups and department teams. They can also provide models and approaches that will help structure whole organisation interventions.
The updated (yellow) cards reflect new insights and evidence generated with, and by APs, as they developed a richer and deeper understanding of the AP-type roles from pan-organisational perspectives.
This guide explores how Thinking Environment processes can be used by APs in their role. Please note that this guide is the second edition, March 2022.
This guide looks at coaching and mentoring models that you can use in your role as an AP supporting colleagues to find solutions to challenges they are experiencing with their practice.
This guide builds on and expands some of the approaches and tools introduced in the ‘Using Coaching and Mentoring to Support Colleagues’ guide.
This guide explores how situated learning and communities of practice can be used as a professional development tool by APs.
This guide is for those who manage Advanced Practitioners. A range of skills, competencies and approaches are explored that will help managers develop APs and maximise their impact in driving improvements in the quality of education across the organisation. It includes three bespoke assessment and audit tools:
AP Manager’s Self-Assessment Tool
Colleagues’ Assessment of the AP Manager Tool
AP Organisational Audit Tool
This guide gathers reflective pieces by APs regarding their role and its impact on their own professional development, colleagues and their organisation.
The accounts offer a range of valuable insights into how to effectively embody this important role and the influence and change it can bring.
