Gain professional recognition

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.  

The recognition scheme is open for applications all year round.

You can receiving support whilst you progress your application for professional recognition in the following ways:

Website guidance
