All staff from UK Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) are eligible for the Schemes. This includes HE in FE and alternative providers. Staff are nominated by their HEI. This includes full-time, part-time, and non-permanent staff. Further information can be found in the relevant awards guidelines. For NTFS, eligible institutions are invited to nominate up to three individual members of staff who clearly demonstrate excellence in teaching and/or supporting the HE learning experience of students. For CATE, eligible institutions are invited to nominate one team who can best demonstrate innovation, positive impact, and student collaboration.
Internal application process
When Advance HE launch the yearly process, we
invite colleagues to submit an application. We also continue our efforts
informally throughout the year to identify suitable candidates. The latter
involves meeting/liaising with colleagues to discuss details of the scheme,
answer questions, determine suitability, and develop a course of action if
appropriate. If you can identify a colleague or a team who may be suitable or
you wish to be considered yourself, please contact EducationalDevelopment@plymouth.ac.uk.
Once applicants have developed their core documents, Educational Development will provide one full set of feedback. We cannot guarantee that every team/colleague who works on an application will be chosen as one of our nominees. An internal selection panel will decide who goes forward based on their assessment of the submitted applications against the NTFS or CATE selection criteria.
For any further questions, please email EducationalDevelopment@plymouth.ac.uk.
