It helped me to see where I could develop – into the Transforming and leading section”
“Undertaking the lead practitioner accreditation process is a fulfilling and rewarding experience. It enables you to reflect on your practice, recognise and celebrate your achievements and focus your attention on where you need to be headed next”
“Applying for the lead practitioner accreditation was, quite simply, the best CPD I have had in 14 years of teaching”
