What are they and why attend?

Workshop participantsNormally, you would be expected to attend such an introductory workshop before going on to prepare your HEA application.

Workshops give you an opportunity to:

  • Discuss and ask questions about the United Kingdom Professional Standards Framework (UKPSF) – the de facto criteria for reviewing your application: What they are, mean, and how to address them in an application for the different categories of Advance HE Fellowship;
  • Discuss and ask questions about the application process at Queen Mary, including obtaining a mentor for your application, and the support with the writing you can receive;
  • Consider examples of how best to evidence against the UKPSF criteria in your application, and;
  • Analyse, with support from the workshop tutor(s), your existing experience and practice of teaching/supporting learning (and learners) for suitable examples that you can use to evidence the criteria.

You can bring your draft application, or the mapping of your experience and practice on UKPSF from the introductory workshop you attended, and make progress with, or complete, writing your application.


Drop-in Sessions

Group discussionThe Advance HE application process for Fellowships will be discussed and any related questions will be answered during these sessions.

Every Tuesday from 14:00-16:00, via Microsoft Teams.

Staff are advised to kindly confirm if they would like to attend any of these sessions by contacting

Staff seeking Fellowships should register their interest with the Teaching Recognition team and will then receive support from the team and a School Academic Development Mentor in writing an Account of Professional Practice (APP) and obtaining References to support their application.

How to prepare:

Read the APP guidelines. Take a moment to think about your teaching and write down a few notes.

Remember, the application is not a biography of your teaching, but a document that gives examples and evidence from your teaching experience, which cover all the areas of the UKPSF Framework. If you would like to discuss any of this with us before the session, please contact us.
