BALEAP members are reminded that the 30th November is the deadline for the current round of portfolio submissions for the Individual Accreditation Scheme (TEAP Scheme). So if your observations are done, and you have built up a portfolio, make that extra effort to get the RAPP finished! If you are coming to the PIM you can ask last minute questions there – alternatively, post them on the Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/groups/642967865851174/ or email TEAP@baleap.org. Remember that you will need to be logged in as a member when you apply.
If you are planning to submit in 2018, there will be further information available in due course.
TEAP applications can be made twice a year, in June and November. The next deadlines are:
You will need to be a BALEAP member (either individual or covered by an institutional membership) in order to apply, and your membership needs to be active on the website at the point of application. Only members will be able to make payments and submit their portfolio. If you are not sure whether your institution is a member or you have any other questions about membership, please email email@example.com.
When you are ready, and logged in, please click here to access the form to apply for accreditation. You will be prompted to submit your RAPP and to pay the fee, either by card or by direct bank transfer.
To encourage those of you who are interested in accreditation, BALEAP will be holding the following events:
Pre-conference event (separate registration): 7th April ‘Observations in the EAP Classroom’ https://www.baleap.org/event/2017pce2

On Saturday 21st 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 Durham University on Friday 22nd 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.”
