Measuring the impact of the UK Professional Standards Framework for Teaching and Supporting Learning (UKPSF)

In July 2012 the Higher Education Academy (HEA) commissioned the Staff and Educational Development Association (SEDA) to conduct an evaluation of the awareness understanding and use of the <UKPSF> at institutional and individual level.

SEDA’s review which consisted of a survey of 95 key informants; a wider survey of 1 250 staff in higher education institutions plus in-depth interviews with eight institutions concluded the UKPSF has been highly influential in shaping academic development and the professional recognition of higher education staff at institutional and national level.

The report and its recommendations will inform the HEA’s management of the UKPSF and its work to encourage its widespread adoption.
