Session aims

To introduce the National Teaching Fellow application scheme.

Each year, the Higher Education Academy (HEA - now part of Advance HE) recognises up to 55 members of staff from across the HE sector as National Teaching Fellows. The NTF scheme celebrates and recognises individuals who have made an outstanding impact on student outcomes and the teaching profession in higher education. Universities can submit applications for up to 3 members of staff each year – in 2018, Dr Susan Way became the first member of BU to be awarded NTF. She benefited from the encouragement and mentoring of the BU NTF team and says "I want to share my experience and help mentor others to achieve this award,​ ensuring BU and other Universities continue to be recognised for the high quality of teaching they deliver.”

Delegates will be able to
Identify the opportunities afforded by a successful outcome
