The Teaching Recognition Programme aims to recognise and promote excellence in teaching and learning.
We aim to engage all educators in the process of seeking Associate Fellowship, Fellowship, Senior Fellowship or Principal Fellowship of the HEA. We also support staff to apply for national recognition through National Teaching Fellowship (NTF), the Collaborative Award for Teaching Excellence (CATE) and the SEED Award.
I have been a mentor for colleagues who are engaging with the Teaching Recognition Programme for the past 5 years and have mentored over 20 colleagues. Mentoring includes initial discussions on the process, signposting colleagues to the excellent support from the QM Academy, providing examples of successful applications and generating feedback on colleagues’ Reflective Account of Practice.
I have found this role to be a very positive experience, supporting my colleagues in their journey to acquire accreditation, in recognition of their educational expertise. It is a great privilege to witness the improvements colleagues have made to benefit the education of our students.I would encourage anybody who wants to take this opportunity, to get in touch with their local mentor or the QM Academy.— Jürgen Groet, PhD, FHEA
If you need help to decide which category of fellowship is right for you, you can use the AdvanceHE Category Tool
Once you have decided which category of Fellowship is right for you, you should book onto a workshop and review the guidance documents. This will help you decide whether you prefer to submit a written or dialogic (verbal) application.
If you would like to apply using the dialogic route, please email email@example.com.
For further information on the Dialogic process, please see:
When you have completed the first draft, please email it to firstname.lastname@example.org in order to be assigned a mentor.
