iNet Lead Practitioner accreditation

iNet’s in-school lead practitioner (LP) programme and accreditation provides a developmental online framework supported by in-school support that can drive forward professional development and distributed leadership within schools and across networks.

Use this consistent approach in all phases and settings to embed action research, evidence-led practice and distributed leadership and support individual and whole school improvement. The LP accreditation helps to:

  • Evaluate impact and strengths within individuals and teams, and recognise areas to develop
  • Give clarity of progression in leading others through criteria and associated levels
  • Retain, support and develop future leaders across the school
  • Build a culture of effective distributed leadership
  • Provide a structure for your school’s professional development plan.
