Dimensions of the framework

These outlines provide an indication, rather than a definitive list, of activities which relate to the UK Professional Standards Framework for teaching and supporting learning 2011 (UKPSF).

These documents will help to explain what is meant by the terms used in the UKPSF. Specific guidance on how to claim HEA Fellowship is provided in the published guidance notes for each of the categories of Fellowship.

Depending on the category of Fellowship you are applying for, you will be expected to demonstrate how your experience relates to the various Dimensions of the Framework. These documents provide examples of the types of evidence you might provide and have been contextualised to specific disciplines.
