Gaining Accreditation

Gaining accreditation allows you time to focus on where and how to develop the elements of teaching in your role. It also helps to create a common language across the organisation demonstrating your passion and engagement to teaching as well as support you apply for new roles.  When considering the different accredited routes available, consider choosing a route that suits your experience, time you have to commit to accreditation and what time learning method suits you. For example do you prefer to learn in your own time, or attend workshops?

Going through any accreditation or professional registration processes provides you with a good understanding of recording and planning continuous professional development.
