“Adopting leap enabled us to update and streamline our process of tracking our trainee’s development”

Central to teacher training is the Professional De­velopment Portfolio (PDP) which supports the development of trainees’ progress in relation to the Standards set by Education and Training Foundation. As a teacher training provider we were in search of an e-portfolio that would provide us with an official representation of trainee teachers learning experience and skill achievement, moreover trainees needed lifetime access post qualification.
In September 2015 we made the transition over to the Leap like a Salmon e-portfolio system. Leap like a Salmon is accessible 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and can be accessed through a computer/laptop, mobile or tablet device. With this flexibility trainee teachers can stay in contact with one another anytime, anywhere. As teacher trainers we are able to have instant access to all of trainee’s progress against each of the teaching standards. Adopting leap enabled us to update and streamline our process of tracking our trainee’s development
