Info

Available for individuals (National Cohort) or school/LP Learning Centre specific cohorts.

Lead Practitioner Accreditation is a nationally recognised status of excellent practice in education for teachers, support staff and leaders at an individual or cohort level, in any phase. This professional accreditation is open to all who lead learning within their school or MAT.

Programme benefits

  • Celebrating practitioners on an individual level: Accreditation improves professional skills and expertise, helping embed and extend teaching and learning in your school that impacts positively on learners.
  • Leaders of learning: Provides a framework and set of standards for benchmarking. Once accredited, LPs continue their journey inspiring others to embrace LP standards and creating communities of learners across the system.
  • Peer support: Cohort participants are supported by and inspired by their peers.
  • Evidence of impact: Outcomes are more immediate, measurable, and transferrable due to the large scale of LP.
  • Learning culture: Fosters confidence in developing and testing ideas.
  • Recruitment and retention: Establishes an evidence-informed culture in schools, attracting and inspiring staff.

How does it work?

For the individual who wishes to be recognised for leadership of learning, the LP process provides a structure that enables you to develop and flourish. It supports your teacher career progression, to develop both yourself and colleagues you work with, across your school or MAT.

When you sign up you can join a national cohort which includes four online support seminars giving you the opportunity to network with other aspiring LPs from a range of settings.

Book as an individual

If you are a school leader who wants to motivate and retain staff, and deliver on school improvement priorities, whilst also enriching the pupil experience, then provide LP accreditation for a cohort of your staff with the option to receive in-person support to tailor projects to school or MAT specific priorities.
