1 to 1 Support Slots

There are also a few 1 to 1 support sessions available via Teams, for those who have already attended a workshop or webinar and produced a draft of their application, but need some additional help before submission (one session only per person please).  These 1 to 1 support slots may be booked, via the Moodle link, on the page for your category of Fellowship. Please ensure that you have self enrolled (key is HEA2015) and joined the panel group for the next available panel date, within the submission area first.  This will then enable you to book one of the 1 to 1 support slots. Susan will contact you via Teams.  Please be ready to share your draft application, in order to receive verbal feedback. Alternativly, you may email a copy of your completed application to Susan Bray who will take a look at it for you, before you submit via Moodle.

PgCertAP HE 

If you are on a full-time academic contract and have been teaching in HE for less than five years (full time equivalent), you are required to take the PgCert AP HE.  This is a teaching qualification which also gives you fellowship of the HEA on successfully completing the course.
