Advance HE can support your institution to embed the PSF and Fellowships and develop communities that have the agency to lead on institution-wide teaching and learning strategies and practice.
Supporting to embed Fellowship at your institution
If your institution is not in a position to go through the accreditation process, Advance HE can support your staff to understand the Fellowship process and draft their applications.
Certificate of Learning and Teaching in HE
The Certificate in Learning and Teaching in Higher Education is Advance HE’s flagship teacher development programme. Aligned to the PSF, it provides the framework for future cohorts to be delivered by internal staff, supporting the institution on the path to Advance HE Teaching and Learning Accreditation.
These workshops prepare a group of staff to make applications for Fellowship at a specific category. The workshops can be run online and provide a dedicated space to focus on the requirements of Fellowship, review example applications relevant to participants’ contexts and to plan applications.
In-house Fellowship writing retreats
With expert support on hand, our in-house Fellowship Writing Retreats provide a structured and guided environment in which to construct an application plan for Fellowship. The writing retreats are delivered aligned to a specific category.
Draft application reviews
A review of a draft Fellowship application can be provided to each applicant. By an agreed date or set of dates, each applicant will send their draft application to an experienced Advance HE consultant for review. The consultant will review the application and provide annotated feedback, including points for further development, by email directly to the applicant.
