The Higher Education Academy (HEA) is a UK-based organisation responsible for enhancing teaching and supporting learning in higher education. We work with governments, universities and other higher education providers to help and achieve change in learning and teaching. We work to improve the experience that students have while they are studying, and we support and develop those who teach them.
Our recognition services make it possible for new or experienced teaching academics, those in leadership roles in learning and teaching, as well as other staff who support student learning to be recognised for their skills and experience against four categories of HEA fellowship: an internationally renowned mark of professional competency.
Our consultancy and change services help universities and colleges worldwide make strategic and practical changes to the way they work at institution, faculty and teaching-team level.
