COVID-19 update

The deadline for institutions submitting for UKPSF accreditation in this round is 31 March. Through Advance HE’s developmental review process and our discussions with institutions we are aware that most institutions are in the final stages of preparing to submit and so we do not plan to change this deadline. If there are institutions who feel this may be problematic for them, we will work flexibly to agree timelines that work in the current circumstances.

If you have any questions about this approach or would like to discuss your institution’s timeline please contact

The Continuum Model of Scholarship

The Continuum Model of Scholarship has emerged from the college-based higher education (CBHE) sector and is presented here by Dr Dave Collins as a possible new way of reflecting upon scholarship. It would hope to facilitate discussions between individuals and their mentors or supervisors regarding engagement in scholarship and has the potential as a developmental tool for the integration of scholarship within learning and teaching in higher education. The Continuum Model of Scholarship has been developed in alignment with the UK Professional Standards Framework (UKPSF) for Teaching and Supporting Learning and would be of interest to those with responsibility for the enhancement of teaching and learning and associated scholarship across a wide variety of institutional settings.
