Advanced Practitioner Case Study - Working with Sessional Tutors, Workers' Educational Association & Adult Community Learning Essex


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.

This project sought to test the effectiveness of the AP role in improving teaching, learning and assessment when supporting sessional tutors.
