Advanced Practitioner Case Study - Coaching in Action, LTE Group & Manchester College with Novus


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 implemented a new strategy for its APs to accelerate changes/refinements to teaching, learning and assessment, at the time of delivery, through coaching-in-action (CiA), or ‘live’ coaching, which is synchronous and experienced first-hand by teachers during lesson delivery.
