Max Places:

This session with *Peter Hartley (NTF) is organised in two parts.
The first half, aimed at senior leaders and colleagues who have a
Student Education role, is intended to provide current information about
the Advance HE ‘National Teaching Fellowships’ (NTF) and the
‘Collaborative Awards for Teaching Excellence’ (CATE). The second half,
beginning at 2:55 after a short break, is aimed at prospective teaching
award nominees and will provide guidance on the nature of winning
applications. You may wish to only attend the portion of the event that
is relevant/ of interest to you, we recommend potential applicants
attend the whole event.

The University of Leeds educators have an outstanding record of success
in being recognised through the NTF scheme and this year a team in
Biological Sciences won our first CATE award. We are keen to support
colleagues to achieve this National honour and hope you can join us for
what will be interesting and useful discussions.
