Our accredited members include Education Advisers, Headteachers, Principals, Local Authority School Improvement professionals, Chief Executives, and Senior Leadership team members across all phases of education and across the UK and internationally.
Three core areas of skills and knowledge underpin the Associate assessment; Advisory, School Improvement, and Governance.
A further three core areas underpin our Senior Associate assessment; Organisational Development, Change Management, and Quality Systems.
The accreditation and development programmes are designed to help those who wish to enable and support school improvement to identify and build on their own knowledge, skills and expertise.
The process is based on clearly defined criteria and provides applicants an opportunity to reflect on, condense and showcase their skills and experience. Applicants also receive external affirmation, feedback and opportunities for further development.
The Associate accreditation process includes an application form, references, a professional discussion, attending an online seminar, and submitting a portfolio for assessment.
The Senior Associate accreditation process includes a self-assessment form, attending an online seminar and a viva with a scripted presentation followed by a panel interview and discussion.
All of the accompanying training seminars for accreditation at both Associate and Senior Associate levels are also available as stand-alone training days for CPD. See the events page for forthcoming dates.
