We support individual professional development, allowing academic staff to keep up to date with latest international research and best practice in learning and teaching.
The UKPSF and HEA Fellowship
We manage the UK Professional Standards Framework, which drives improvements in learning and teaching in higher education. Higher education professionals are eligible to apply for Fellowship of the HEA. With more than 70,000 Fellows across the world (as of Jan 2016), HEA Fellowship is an internationally recognised badge of professional competency for those who teach and support learning in higher education.
The four categories of Fellowship
You can become a Fellow of the HEA by demonstrating that you meet the requirements of one of the four descriptors contained in the UKPSF.
