Candidate RTTP is a new designation that allows entrants to the profession to signal that they have committed to a pathway of training and development leading to the award of full RTTP status. It indicates to employers that they are serious about their career and aspire to meet the highest standards. Those that successfully achieve the status may use the designation ‘Candidate RTTP’ after their name.
It is normally expected that Candidate RTTP designation will be sought approximately 6 months into their post (typically at the halfway point of a probation period) by which time the Candidate and their manager will be able to judge their suitability and commitment to the Pathway.
As with the full RTTP designation, there are three requirements: KE/KT/TT experience, KE/KT/TT skills, and KE/KT/TT achievement.
All three requirements can be demonstrated by completing the application forms.
CANDIDATE RTTP REQUIREMENTS
- KE/KT/TT EXPERIENCE
The Candidate is working in a KE/KT/TT role and is a member of one of the ATTP Alliance Associations
- KE/KT/TT KEY SKILLS
The Candidate is committed to skills development through training or working with a mentor
- KE/KT/TT ACHIEVEMENT
The Candidate has developed a Career Aspiration Plan
The three requirements above are demonstrated through a brief, signed statement by your line Manager or Director, attesting that the documents uploaded accurately reflect your role.
THE ROLE OF THE SUPERVISOR/ LINE-MANAGER/ SERVICE DIRECTOR
The Candidate’s supervisor, line-manager, or service director has an important role in supporting the Candidate to achieve RTTP.
In order to register for candidate RTTP status, the Candidate is required to prepare a Career Aspiration Plan that describes how they hope to see their career develop and setting out the training/experiences/mentoring that will help them to meet these aspirations. This must be prepared either with the support of the Director, or a supervisor/ line-manager approved by the Director.
