This introductory 2-hour session is for colleagues who are interested in developing a claim for Associate Fellowship/Fellowship or Senior Fellowship of the Higher Education Academy.
This session will introduce you to and explore both the UKPSF and the TSL@USW CPD scheme; its pathways and elements. Fellowships are awarded on the basis of a successful and effective demonstration of one of the four UKPSF Descriptors. This session will enable you to decide which category of Fellowship to apply for at this stage in your career. We will discuss three of the four Descriptors of the UKPSF enabling you to select the most appropriate to your practice and professional experience.
This 2-hour workshop is for colleagues who, having attended an introductory Intro to the UKPSF for claimants workshop, are now in a position to undertake focused development towards their Associate Fellow/Fellow/Senior Fellow claim making. We will explore the ins and outs of claim making for this category and help you think about the evidence and case you will need to build for your claim to be successful.
TSL@USW: Writing Retreat for Claimants, facilitated by Lyndsey Muir, Lecturer in Educational Development CELT – available on request

TSL@USW, the new HEA Recognition scheme for USW, uses mentors to help claimants write a good claim. This 2-hour workshop is mainly for colleagues who have been nominated by their Faculty / Professional Service/ Partner College to be a TSL@USW Mentor, but may also be of interest for those who would like to be a mentor in the future. The highly interactive workshop will explore approaches to mentoring that will enable mentees to maximise the potential of their claims for HEA recognition against the UKPSF.
