The HEA Fellowships are a portable award that demonstrates your commitment to enhancing Higher Education. The pathway is an encouragement for you to undertake both formal and informal professional development (CPD) and to record this against the UK Professional Standards Framework (UKPSF) at a level appropriate for the activities that you undertake. For those who demonstrate sustained effectiveness and academic leadership there is the Senior Fellow, also called Descriptor 3; for those who demonstrate a sustained and effective record of impact at strategic level there is the Principal Fellow, also called Descriptor 4.
Awards such as these are increasingly important for institutions as evidence of teaching quality and the professionalisation of teaching.
