I’ve been fortunate enough to work as one of a small team of mentors on the ETF's Outstanding Teaching, Learning and Assessment programme (OTLA) over the last year.

This makes the projects particularly challenging and interesting because of the reforms which we are immersed in.
Based on our experiences of engaging apprenticeship practitioners in research, I will share what I hope are practical considerations which can be used to support others to set up and undertake meaningful research in their own work-setting.
