Advanced Practitioner Case Study - A Universal Model, Bournemouth and Poole College & Kingston Maurward College


This case study is from one of 15 collaborative projects, across a range of cross-sector partnerships that were commissioned by the Education and Training Foundation to support Phase 4 of the Outstanding Teaching, Learning and Assessment (OTLA) programme.

This phase was delivered by touchconsulting and CETTAcademy to evaluate the role of Advanced Practitioners (APs), as defined by Tyler et al (2017)[1]. The projects were intended to explore the functions and values of the AP role within the partnership’s quality improvement priorities.

The partners, Bournemouth and Poole College working with Kingston Maurward College, wanted to raise the profile and accessibility of their APs to staff as a means of driving quality improvements in teaching, learning and assessment across their organisations. They aimed to champion a new, more ‘inclusive’ AP role focused on developing all staff, not just those identified via the learning observation process as requiring improvement.
