What Full Sabbaticals are available?

The Sabbatical scheme funds a continuous period of release from normal duties for staff to advance the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning leading to the development of individual members of staff, and to the production of outputs and outcomes that will positively impact on learning and teaching at NTU and across the sector.

What Full Sabbaticals are available?

There are three types of full sabbaticals:

Individual sabbaticals
Colleagues can apply for salary buy-out for up to six months FTE. Colleagues may use funding to pay for the involvement of one or more students.

Joint sabbaticals
Colleagues can apply for salary buy-out for up to six months shared between two colleagues. Colleagues may use funding to pay for the involvement of one or more students.

Tiger team sabbaticals
Inspired by NASA, ‘Tiger Team’ refers to a high-functioning team of three or more specialists who come together to complete a specific project. TILT tiger team sabbaticals enable unique and innovative collaborations between academic and/or Professional Service staff.

Two sabbaticals are available each academic year and are awarded on a competitive basis.

Sabbatical funding is equivalent to a Lecturer/Senior Lecturer salary for up to six months, and funding can be divided among colleagues as appropriate per the different types of sabbatical: individual, joint or ‘tiger team’.

Colleagues can access the Guidance and Application Forms on Thrive.
