TEAP news


Submit your portfolio

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 or email 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:

30th November 2017

30th June 2018

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

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.

Bristol TEAP Workshop

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.
