Welcome to the new and improved practitioner site! What do you think?


We’ve made a number of changes in collaboration with you, the user, to make your experience on the site better. So, what have we done?

  1. Simplified site navigation
    You’ll notice we’ve cleaned up the site, giving it a new, simple design that makes it quicker and easier to find the information you’re looking for.
  2. Updated content
    We’ve re-structured and re-written the content, breaking it down into clear, digestible sections. This has been done to improve understanding and make it easier to share specific elements, for example, this blog post, on your social media channels.
  3. Improved search function
    Our new filtered search allows you to search for resources and supporting materials based on academic year, level of study, audience, subject and type of resource. Why not test it out.
  4. The latest news and updates
    Our popular quarterly magazine ‘Exchange’ has been replaced with a blog, which we'll update on a regular basis. This means you’ll still get all the latest news, information and articles, but you won’t have to wait three months to get it.

You’ll also find direct links to related supporting materials from blog posts – saving you time and making sure you have the information you need, when you need it.

Have your say!

The updated site has been live for a few weeks now and we'd love to know what you think - so we've created a short feedback survey. We'll continue make improvements based on your feedback so please let us know what you like about the site, and where we could be doing better.
