Description
Pre-requisites
You should attend a ‘Briefing – Professional Recognition in
Student Education: Obtaining Fellowship of the HEA’ session prior to
this workshop.

To apply for D1 or D2, you should be employed by the University of Leeds
at the time of the submission and review of their application. You
should have sufficient experience of teaching and / or supporting
learning at the University of Leeds to be able to appoint as one of
their two referees an employee at Leeds who can validate their practice
at the University in an informed way. They should be able to draw on
evidence of their Higher Education (HE) practice from the last three
years to make a successful application; evidence which is more historic
cannot constitute a substantial part of an application and, where cited,
must always be related and applied to current practice.

In addition:

To apply for D1, you should:
• have a minimum of one year’s experience of teaching and / or
supporting learning in HE,
• be able to demonstrate achievement against at least two Areas of
Activity, as well as appropriate Core Knowledge and Professional Values,
of the UK Professional Standards Framework for Teaching and Supporting
Learning in HE (UKPSF).

To apply for D2, you should:
• have a minimum of two years’ experience of teaching and / or
supporting learning in HE,
• be able to demonstrate achievement against all Areas of Activity, as
well all aspects of Core Knowledge and Professional Values, of the
UKPSF.

Preparatory work
Between attending the session ‘Briefing – Professional Recognition in
Student Education: Obtaining Fellowship of the HEA’ and attending this
workshop, you should choose the category of Fellowship you wish to apply
for. You should also read the handbook and application form for the
category of Fellowship which is appropriate to you. These resources will
be attached to the Outlook confirmation you will be sent in advance of
this workshop.

Aims
This workshop aims to enable participants to collate and present
evidence to make an application for Associate Fellowship or Fellowship
of the HEA and to access support for their application from within the
University.

Outcomes
This workshop will provide participants with an opportunity to:
• reflect on and discuss how their student education practice maps to D1
or D2 of the UKPSF,
• begin to collate and present evidence for their application for
Associate Fellowship or Fellowship of the HEA,
• plan how to demonstrate the reflective and scholarly nature of their
practice in their application,
• identify development needs and strategies for addressing them,
• consider appropriate referees for their application.

begin to develop their written applications. It will cover the following
broad topics:
