Whilst we are very much aware of the demands educational practitioners are under it is essential that we seek input from you to prioritise, shape and improve our qualifications.

Initially, we would like to begin this review by setting up some focus groups that include teachers, lecturers, and trainers currently delivering and those who may consider doing so in future. We would also welcome contributions from employers and industry professionals.

If you are interested in getting involved with this work, or have any questions about it, please contact Rowan Thomson indicating the qualifications you are interested in helping with.
