Individual members of staff select a learning focus, look at some of the research in the proposed area, then work with a school/college lead - normally a colleague within their school/college to plan their learning journey.
That means documenting the proposed subject area, how they intend to research it and what they hope to find. They then start to introduce the changes and share what they’ve learned with their tutor and other school/college colleagues.
Finally, they are required to reflect on the overall process and its impact on their practice, submitting/presenting a TLA project that documents their findings.
All Recognition projects are verified by TLA verifiers who are other teachers or school/college staff with a sound understanding of the TLA’s principles and who have been trained to use quality assured criteria to assess whether a project has met the standard for formal Recognition.
When Recognition has been granted a member of staff will become an Associate Member of the TLA and is entitled to use AMTLA after their name.
