On Saturday 21 May, 43 EAP professionals came to Bristol University CELFS to engage with the TEAP portfolio scheme for professional development and accreditation through one of three pathways. One participant has summarised the event here:
The workshop provided participants with information and support, as well as time for planning and writing. Many participants ended the day feeling that they are well on the way to preparing their portfolio, with a clear idea of what they have to do next.
A TEAP workshop was held at the University of Durham on Friday 22 April. Here is some of the feedback from participants:
‘Does what it says on the tin’
Very informative sessions’
‘No time-wasting guff!’
‘Much clearer and less daunting’
‘Opportunity to talk…’
‘Opportunity to ask questions…
‘Felt reassured about both value and workload of the Scheme’
‘An excellent introduction to TEAP and what is involved’
‘Good to have time to write’
‘A great day which flew past’
