HEA Fellowships

NTU has had an accredited HEA Fellowships scheme since 2012 – we have a thriving community of over 1000 fellows at NTU. Accredited in August 2018, the TILT Professional Recognition Scheme now offers all professional services, technicians and academic staff who teach and support learning the opportunity to apply for any of four HEA fellowships that recognize the quality and impact of their practice at different stages of their careers.

What are the fellowships?

The Scheme is managed and delivered by the Academic Practice Development Team in partnership with the Schools.
In addition to the Scheme, NTU has some course provision which has been accredited by Advance HE to enable those successfully completing them to gain HEA fellowships. These include: Academic Professional Standard (APS) incorporating the Postgraduate Certificate in Academic Practice (PGCAP) for category 2 Fellowship (FHEA), and the Associate Lecturer Programme (category 1 Associate Fellowship AFHEA).


Which fellowship is for me?
Anyone who teaches and/or supports learning is encouraged to gain the best category of fellowship for them as it helps us demonstrate and maintain the quality of teaching at NTU. Complete the short diagnostic assessment (provided by Advance HE) to help you decide – follow this link.
