Recognition

ALDinHE Recognition Scheme

The recognition scheme is now open for applications between the 1st March and 31st May 2020.

The ALDinHE recognition scheme emerged from a strong community consensus that although Learning Developers can have diverse roles, they will share certain values. Using this feedback, ALDinHE developed the Certified Practitioner (CeP) and Certified Leading Practitioner (CeLP) awards.  

A CeP/CeLP online workshop was held on the 30th April 2020.


Eligibility

You can apply for CeP or CeLP if you:

  1. Are based at an institution that is an ALDinHE member; or
  2. Have an individual ALDinHE membership

ALDinHE membership information is available on our JOIN page.

Benefits

The CeP and CeLP awards promote Learning Development as a profession in its own right.

Successful applicants receive formal recognition of their specialist knowledge and practice. This demonstrates expertise to both current and prospective employers, and might also be useful when applying for HEA fellowship.

Successful applicants are:

  • Given a certificate in recognition of their Learning Development expertise.
  • Added to a list of CePs on the ALDinHE website – publically recognising their expertise.
  • Encouraged to add their ALDinHE status in their email signature

There is currently no requirement to revalidate an award. However, ALDinHE reserves the right to introduce a revalidation scheme / tiered recognition categories at a future date.
