Responding to feedback from the sector, we have developed a specialist virtual programme to support cohorts of individuals to achieve Principal  Fellowship.

The programme will provide guidance, dedicated writing sessions, review of a draft PSF 2023 application with one-to-one feedback, prior to direct submission to Advance HE. Led by an experienced PSF 2023 Consultant, the programme will support individuals to achieve Principal Fellowship where institutions currently don’t have accredited provision for these categories.

Programme delivery

The 12-week programme will be supported via Advance HE Connect, allowing for peer-networking, in addition to guidance from an experienced PSF 2023 Consultant.

The programme features five, live sessions delivered via Zoom:

  • Introductory session (90 minutes) - week 1 - 25th June 2024 (10am-11:30am BST)
  • Three writing sessions (120 minutes) - weeks 3, 5 and 7 - 9th July, 23rd July and 6th August 2024 (10am-12pm BST)
  • Final Q&A session (60 minutes) - week 12 - 10th September 2024 (10am-11am BST)

In addition, participants will receive a review of one full draft application plus feedback delivered via a 60-minute 1:1 session.

Principal Fellowship brings you a range of benefits:

  • Consolidating your personal development and evidence of your strategic influence in your higher education career;
  • Demonstrating your commitment to teaching, learning and the student experience, through engagement in a practical process that encourages research, reflection and development;
  • Principal Fellowship is increasingly sought by employers across the education sector as a criterion of appointment and promotion for strategic management and leadership positions;
  • For individuals, to identify their expertise with the entitlement to use post-nominal letters – PFHEA;
  • Recognised and valued by a growing number of international institutions.
