Higher Education Academy (HEA) Fellowships are internationally recognised across the higher education sector as valid teaching accreditations. Fellowships provide a means to formally recognise and endorse the teaching experience of academic staff with no previous teaching qualification.
During a workshop session last month, I provided an overview of the HEA and the award against the UK Professional Standards Framework (UKPSF) by describing the UKPSF framework, outlining the benefits of gaining recognition and explaining the how to apply for recognition. A video of the session is available below for any staff wanting to know more about this application and accreditation process.
