National Teaching Fellowship Scheme
Following a review, the Higher Education Teaching Academy has changed the terms of its National Teaching Fellowships. In September 2006, 50 awards of £10,000 each will be made to teachers and supporters of learning in higher education. Successful applicants are then eligible to apply for teaching development grants of up to £200,000.
The 2006 scheme is open to all staff (both full-time and part-time) in England and Northern Ireland who can demonstrate excellence on supporting the student learning experience in higher education. There are now no categories of nomination and no minimum experience requirements.
An application pack is available to download as PDF documents from the Higher Education Academy's Web site at www.heacademy.ac.uk/ntfs.htm. The University is permitted to put forward three nominations. These will be selected by a group convened by the Pro-Vice-Chancellor (Education).
The University must submit the final nominations to the HE Academy by Wednesday, 5 April. Short draft applications of no more than five pages in total should be submitted to the University's selection panel (c/o Richard Hughes, University Offices) by Friday, 17 March. The University's Learning Institute (formerly the IAUL) is prepared to provide guidance to potential candidates on their applications: contact Graham Gibbs firstname.lastname@example.org).
