National Teaching Fellowship Scheme (NTFS)

The NTF scheme is an external award administered by Advance HE. The University can nominate up to three candidates each year who have an excellent track record in teaching and learning with a national and international reputation. The scheme is co-ordinated internally by the Institute of Teaching and Learning (ITL) and Teaching and Learning Group (TLG). The University also provides significant support for potential nominees.

Are you a future National Teaching Fellow?

The Institute of Teaching and Learning welcomes expressions of interest in being one of the University’s three nominees for AdvanceHE National Teaching Fellowship (NTF).

This prestigious annual award is given to up to 55 individuals from across the sector based on the following criteria:

  • Criterion 1: Individual Excellence - Evidence of enhancing and transforming student outcomes and/or the teaching profession; demonstrating impact commensurate with the individual’s context and the opportunities afforded by it
  • Criterion 2: Raising the profile of excellence - Evidence of supporting colleagues and influencing support for student learning and/or the teaching profession; demonstrating impact and engagement beyond the nominee’s immediate academic or professional role.
  • Criterion 3: Developing excellence - Show the nominee’s commitment to and impact of ongoing professional development with regard to teaching and learning and/or learning support.

Reviewers will be looking for evidence of reach, value and impact to be demonstrated.

Reach, Value and Impact are defined by AdvanceHE as:

  • Reach: The scale of influence
  • Value: The benefit derived for staff and students
  • Impact: The difference made to policy, practice and/ or student outcomes as a result of an activity.

If you are considering nomination for an NTF award in the next three years, please look out for applications to join our Pipeline Programme - a series of interactive workshops exploring the award criteria and process, starting in Spring 2024.
