touchconsulting Ltd is a small organisation that co-designs and delivers big quality improvement programmes for the education and training profession


EXCITING NEWS: the team at touchconsulting Ltd is delighted to announce that we will be delivering the 2021-2022 #APConnect programme on behalf of the Education and Training Foundation. 

The Education and Training Foundation commissioned touchconsulting Ltd in 2018 to design and deliver the ‘Professional Development Programme for Advanced Practitioners.’ The programme has evolved year-on-year and is now known as #APConnect. This year it is even bigger and brighter and for that reason we are planning a staggered start.

Year 4 is informed by our research with APs last year and we are currently designing the various strands and access points. Initially we are recruiting to the hugely popular Constellations B and C (Communities of Practice strand) and to the Using the Thinking Environment: Advanced Practice blended professional learning module (and associated in-house provision).

The networking and collaboration facilitated through meets or communication tools have been excellent, the opportunities provided for the APs to develop skills has also been fantastic.

Impact Survey, March 2020

There is a real body of shared practice growing through this project. This focus on teaching and learning through APs and educators is having a very positive impact on teachers. If teachers aren’t motivated, then what chance is there for learners.
