Undertaking Advanced Teacher Status (ATS) and the research project proved to be quite a journey, one which took many twists and turns, not least by my Advanced Learning Practitioner (ALP) role coming under threat of redundancy during a recent restructure, writes Elaine Battams, ALP at Barnfield College.
However, I was lucky enough to secure my position at an interview at the end of the summer term. During the interview, I outlined my learning from the research carried out as part of the ATS process and how this has impacted on me personally
