Target Audience: Learning and Teaching Staff
The first step to getting started in the programme is to register to attend a:
“Professional Recognition of Learning and Teaching Information Workshop”.
This workshop will introduce you to the Strathclyde Recognition Pathways, discuss the requirements for recognition, assist you in selecting the most appropriate Descriptor category to work toward, and provide information on peer support networks and developmental opportunities to support you in your journey to successful accreditation.
Welcome to Strathclyde’s Framework for Professional Recognition of Teaching. This framework provides a tool for you to plan your development in learning and teaching, and has been approved and accredited by the Higher Education Academy so that your participation in elements of this framework can be recognised through the award of an appropriate category of fellowship of the Higher Education Academy.
Participation in this framework is free and is open to all staff involved in learning and teaching, including those who teach, and those who support teaching, including support and technical staff. A flexible approach is offered that allows staff to consider the most appropriate category of fellowship and bring together a combination of experience and development opportunities to their application.
HEA Fellowship is an international recognition of a commitment to professionalism in teaching and learning in higher education and demonstrates that your practice is aligned with the UK Professional Standards Framework (UKPSF). To date over 75,000 individuals have become Fellows of the HEA.
HEA Fellowship brings a range of benefits to develop and progress your career. It provides a valuable measure of success and is increasingly sought by employers across the higher education sector as a condition of appointment and promotion.
Strathclyde’s Framework for Professional Recognition of Teaching is accredited to award the status of Associate Fellow, Fellow, or Senior Fellow of the HEA. It is awarded to those who have met the appropriate standards in teaching and supporting learning in HE, under the UK Professional Standards Framework (UKPSF). Individuals who wish to apply for Principal Fellowship of the HEA should do so individually through the HEA, and support for this is available from the Academic Development team within the Organisational and Staff Development Unit (OSDU).
