Teaching Recognition Scheme

We will be open for 'expressions of interest' to the pilot Teaching Recognition Scheme in January 2021, with the first participants to start later in Hilary term. Places are strictly limited. Further information will be available on this web page in the new year. 

As part of the accreditation of our teaching development programmes with Advance HE, the Centre for Teaching and Learning is introducing a new Advance HE-accredited Teaching Recognition Scheme.

This is an Oxford-based scheme through which individuals will be able to make an application for recognition as a Senior Fellow of the Higher Education, Descriptor 3 of the Professional Standards Framework for Teaching and Supporting Learning.

Applicants who gain a place on the scheme will be supported in writing their application, and will also have opportunities to meet and network with other teaching leaders across Oxford. As with our teaching development programmes, there is no fee for this scheme, although places will be limited.

Fellowship of the Higher Education Academy

We also recognise that many individuals completed our Postgraduate Certificate in Teaching and Learning in Higher Education, or its forerunner, the Enhancing Teaching Programme, during the period 2016-20 in which Oxford did not have accreditation with Advance HE.

Individuals who previously successfully completed one of these programmes and who continue to teach at Oxford will have an opportunity through the Teaching Recognition Scheme to gain recognition as a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy. Participants will be supported in writing their application and there will not be a fee for participation on this scheme, although places will be limited.

The recognition scheme is for applicants who have already undertaken the activities, reflection and teaching practice that allow them to make a ‘recognition claim’ that they have achieved the status they are seeking. A taught programme provides a guided, supported route to undertaking the activities, reflection, and developing one’s teaching practice.

A core part of the mission for the Centre for Teaching and Learning is to support individual tutors and academic staff who wish to develop their teaching. We are deliberately keeping cohorts to a size that enables us to provide a high level of 1:1 support, which we know is one of the major strengths of our teaching development programmes. We have limited staff resources and so we balance this mission with providing support to departments, academic teams, and the institution as a whole via other activities such as the provision of institution-wide online courses and consultancy.
