Advanced Practitioner Case Study - English and Maths, South Devon College and Bridgwater & Taunton College

Summary

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 partnership wanted to explore how they could use the role of the AP to address the challenge of increasing learner attendance, achievement and satisfaction when taking GCSE and Functional Skills Maths and English qualifications.
