NI Professional Standards Consultation now Open

Lifelong Learning UK has secured funding from the Department for Employment and Learning in Northern Ireland to develop Professional Standards for Learning Delivery.

The objective of the project is to develop Northern Ireland specific Professional Standards for teachers, tutors and trainers in the lifelong learning sector. These will then underpin appropriate guides for application in an e-learning environment to ensure practitioners have access to updated guidance.

Lifelong Learning UK has been working with the sector to develop a draft of the Professional Standards. The consultation phase is now open and the draft Professional Standards and a questionnaire is available to download. We would welcome your views so please do complete the questionnaire and return to no later than Friday 13 March 2009.

Download the draft Professional Standards (508kb pdf)
