Reward and recognition


National Teaching Fellowship Scheme and Collaborative Award for Teaching Excellence

Every UK university can nominate up to three individuals annually for a National Teaching Fellowship Award, a process administered through the UK Higher Education Academy.  The aim of National Teaching Fellowship (NTF) awards is to recognise individual excellence in teaching and/or supporting higher education learning.  The HEA also recently developed an award to recognise the increasing importance of programme teams in teaching and student learning support: The Collaborative Award for Teaching Excellence (CATE). While both NTFS and CATE are very competitive (55 NTF and 6 CATE awards are made nationally), University staff have enjoyed success, most recently in the 2017 and 2018 rounds.

A briefing session, presented by Fran Beaton, UELT, Academic Practice Team was held on Thursday 18 October 2018 for colleagues to find out about the criteria, the application process, timescale and available support and hear about the experiences of previous NTFS and CATE winners.
