Resources to support your learning and professional development
'I would highly recommend becoming a member of BAOT, particularly as a student. Having joined during my 2nd year of study, and utilising the wealth of online resources available by COT, I noticed an improvement in my grades and a much greater knowledge of policy, guidance and evidence which informs practice. It is also really cheap for students!'
Alicia Morse, 3rd Year Student, Plymouth University
