About HE Fellowship
Fellowship of the Higher Education Academy (HEA) is one way to recognise your professional development as a teacher and supporter of learning. Senior Fellowship is for colleagues who can demonstrate a proven, sustained track record in HE level teaching, management/mentorship/support of peers and are seeking to progress into leadership positions.

Senior Fellowship signals to the sector that a person is an experienced academic who is reflective about how they support learning and that they have managed/supported/mentored others to enhance their teaching practice.

The Application Process
Application for Senior Fellowship consists of a 3000 – 5000 word reflection, and two 1000 word case studies of your practice. The application is reviewed internally by a panel of peers who are able to award HEA Accredited Professional Recognition.

  • Identified areas of practice that you could evidence and reflect upon, as well as how they will fit within the Reflective Account of Practice
  • Begun writing-up some of your examples of practice
