Home Learning and Teaching Academy ALPINE Route 3: Recognition Timeline

Route 3: Recognition Timeline

The timeline for seeking professional recognition through ALPINE will depend on which Recognition Route you are following. If you are taking Recognition Route 1 or 2, via the PG Cert Teaching in Higher Education, your timeline for recognition will follow the duration of your studies and will be determined by when you successfully complete the programme.

Similarly if you are taking Route 3 (Portfolio of Professional Practice) your timeline for recognition will depend on the period over which you agree with your ALPINE mentor to prepare your application. Associate Fellow and Fellow applications would be expected to be completed within three months, Senior Fellow applications in six months.
