"@AdvanceHE have awarded over 150,000 fellows and I am one of them. Being awarded Senior Fellowship in 2015 was important to me because I was progressing rapidly in my area of work and this was a way I could be recognised for what I was doing to support student engagement in learning, and innovating academic practices in my institution. #Fellowship #HigherEd"

Completing my Senior Fellowship set me on a path of reflection and appreciation for my body of work and achievements, but supporting others to submit their #Fellowship applications really is the cherry on the cake 🥰 #HigherEd @AdvanceHE pic.twitter.com/pJFURRGxUo— Jade Kimberley (@Jade_K_HE) October 24, 2021
I'm delighted to be one of the 150000 fellows of @AdvanceHE. Receiving recognition for my contribution to student learning and academic practices with @OpenUniversity felt particularly rewarding to me as a former OU student. #Fellowship pic.twitter.com/3WC8Tx7i4e— Steven Padley (@steven_padley) October 29, 2021

.@AdvanceHE is celebrating having awarded 150,000 fellowships. Having gained #FHEA in 2019 I’ve since mentored 5 colleagues through the process. It’s something I really enjoy - more than going through it myself! 😁 #HigherEd #Fellowship pic.twitter.com/6DlZlmvjDj— Cara Clarke (@CaraClarke) November 19, 2021
