Teaching Recognition

The Teaching Recognition Programme recognises and promotes excellence in teaching and learning. We support educators applying for Fellowship with Advance HE.

On these pages you’ll find everything you need to know about taking this next, exciting step in your academic career, from identifying which Fellowship is for you, to support with your application. 

News and Events

I agreed to be a mentor and an assessor for TRP applications and have done that for the last five years, mentoring a further seven staff through to successful AdvanceHE D1 or D2 fellowships. In the meantime I have also obtained my own D3 Senior Fellowship: which was a lot of work, but also much more straightforward than my D2 thanks to the greatly improved guidance and mentoring available from QMA. At the same time a real community has sprung up around the TRP; a group of academics who are truly cross-faculty and interdisciplinary and enjoy thinking about what our education practice means and helping others to make sense of theirs and gain the recognition they deserve for it. I would say I came for the [mentoring] cake but stayed for the company, definitely.
