HEA Fellowship Support Programme

HEA Fellowship is open to all academic members of staff and many others who engage in teaching or have teaching support roles in Faculties or Directorates. You can be delivering teaching to students or to academic staff, and it must be at HE Level 4 or above.  At the very least, your teaching experience must add up to a minimum of 1 year’s fte.  For example: Research Assistants, Associate Lecturers, Post-Doctoral Researchers who teach, Careers staff, Library staff, Lab Technicians, Disabled Student Support staff have all achieved at least Associate Fellow status in the past.

We offer a range of workshops and support sessions suitable for staff seeking fellowship at all levels and whatever stage you have reached with your application so far.   If you’d like more information or advice, please contact us at: talent@shu.ac.uk
