Advanced Practitioner Case Study - Triangles of Excellence, East Riding of Yorkshire Council & City of York Council


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 project broadly aimed to use coaching and mentoring to enable the power of improvement through a self-development process for individuals which would then impact positively on colleagues, learners and the organisation. To do this each partnership created a team of APs  in line with the AP functions and values, using the Teaching Triangle methodology to develop the delivery team, share good practice and drive quality improvement.
