HEA Fellowship introductory workshop

Are you a member of staff with 5+ years of experience teaching or supporting learning? Find out more about HEA Fellowship at our introductory workshop.

The University of Kent’s Route to Recognition for Experienced Staff (RRES) is a non-taught recognition scheme for experienced staff (academic, support, technical, PGRs) with a minimum of five years’ experience of leading, teaching and/or supporting learning in higher education.

HEA Fellowship demonstrates a personal and institutional commitment to professionalism in learning and teaching in higher education.  Fellowship can help staff:

  • Consolidate personal development and evidence of professional practice in your higher education career.
  • Demonstrate commitment to teaching, learning and the student experience through engagement in a practical process that encourages research, reflection and development.

Fellowship is increasingly sought by employers across the higher education sector as a condition of appointment and promotion and is recognised and valued by a growing number of international institutions.

The workshop, led by Julia Hope, will take place via TEAMS on the 5 of July from 11.00 – 12.30. You can join the Team here.  

The session will include:

  • how to apply and the application process
  • what evidence you will need to put into your application
  • the nature and role of the referees,
  • the internal assessment process, and further support available for applicants
  • an opportunity for Q&A, both as a group and individually

If you wish to attend, email recognition@kent.ac.uk to book a place.

If you are unsure which category of HEA fellowship you should claim for, have a go at the Fellowship Category tool. This self-analysis tool will ask about your professional activities in teaching and/or supporting learning in higher education. You will be asked about the range of activities you undertake in your practice.
