National Teaching Fellowship Scheme
The National Teaching Fellowship Scheme is run by the Higher Education Academy on behalf of HEFCE. The scheme is intended to 'celebrate excellence in teaching by recognising individuals who are outstanding as teachers and promoters of learning'.
The National Teaching Fellowship Scheme was run for the first time in 2000. The Individual Award recognises and rewards individual excellence in teaching in higher education in England and Northern Ireland. Fifty Individual Awards of £10,000 were made in 2007 to be used for personal development in learning and teaching. Each university was allowed to make a maximum of three nominations.
EPSC has agreed that the University's nominees should be drawn from those who are recognised in the University's own Teaching Awards Scheme for the prior year. Any one of those receiving an award may apply for nomination. A panel appointed by the Educational Policy and Standards Committee will consider submissions and select the three submissions which the University is allowed to make. The closing date for individual submissions to the University panel will be published in the Gazette.
