Do you believe that the greatest drivers of professionalism in your school are the practitioners who always aspire to improve, nurture and lead colleagues, and develop the next generation?
Lead Practitioner Accreditation will help empower and develop your best practitioners, to reward and inspire them to make a difference where it really counts - in the classroom. The Lead Practitioner programme is made up of a framework of professional standards and a process of accreditation that has been designed by the profession, for the profession. It recognises the skills, experience and qualities of school staff at every level, serving to embed and extend teaching and learning that impacts positively on learners.
The accreditation programme starts with a rigorous - but not onerous - process of self-assessment against the criteria. This involves online accreditation, supported by moderation and guidance from SSAT experts and experienced Lead Practitioners (LPs). During accreditation teachers reflect on the impact of their practice on learners and understand how it can be shared and developed with colleagues. Action research and evidence underpin every step of the process.
