Members of staff may decide to enrol on a TLA accredited module gaining credits that can be used towards a Higher Education qualification. TLA accredited modules are available at 4 levels so participants can engage with the TLA at a level appropriate to any qualifications they may have and to suit their individual and school/college needs.
TLA accredited modules are offered through each of the TLA Regional Centres and participants will register with one of the TLA Universities or University Colleges to gain credits. The modules involve undertaking a piece of research in the chosen subject area and also incorporate reflection on the impact of the work undertaken in their school/college.
All accredited TLA modules are assessed by qualified academic staff in TLA Regional Centres.
Participants who complete 30 credits of TLA accredited learning at levels 4, 5, 6 or 7 will become a full Member of the TLA and will be entitled to use MTLA after their name.
Further details regarding Recognition and Accreditation can be found in the ‘TLA Recognition and Accreditation Booklet’ (available to members).
The TLA professional learning framework is based on six core dimensions that encourage professionals to research, collaborate, plan, undertake and evaluate a professional enquiry project and disseminate the findings. Projects are assessed against criteria which confirm that the participant has followed the process outlined in these core dimensions (see document entitled ‘TLA Recognition and Accreditation Booklet’ for further details).
