Advanced Practitioner Case Study - A Universal Model, Bournemouth and Poole College & Kingston Maurward College

Principal focus of the project

The partners worked together to raise the visibility of their APs by codesigning a ‘Meet your APs’ page which they each uploaded to their virtual learning environments (VLEs). The page contained pictures of each of the APs, their particular areas of expertise as well as something more unique and humorous about each of them that was aimed at engaging staff and breaking down barriers.

Areas of learning
What is this about and what were the main findings?

At Bournemouth and Poole College 21 staff self-referred to receive AP support. 90% of the staff who received such support found it beneficial. Increases were seen for the number of students achieving merits and distinctions compared to previous cohorts, and some benefit was attributed to other factors such as more stable staffing.
