The accreditation and development programme establishes international quality standards for education specialists who support and challenge schools. The programme identifies the key areas to be assessed for accreditation at Associate and Senior Associate level. This page focusses on gaining accreditation as an Associate member.
An Associate member would be expected to demonstrate the ability to intervene successfully in identifying and tackling school improvement causal factors and demonstrate a broad sphere of influence in a variety of organisations more widely than their own institution.
The AoEA learning journey to become an accredited Associate involves an application form with references, followed by a professional discussion, a seminar and finally a portfolio. The process is designed to be completed across a period of two to three months.
Three core criteria will underpin the Associate Assessment: advisory skills & knowledge, school improvement skills & knowledge, and governance skills & knowledge.
