The Advance HE (previously HEA) has operated the National Teaching Fellowship Scheme for a number of years and recently introduced a new Collaborative Award for Teaching Excellence.

Ulster University has had success in applications for Advance HE’s prestigious NTFS and CATE awards in recent years.

You can read about recent winners here.

To continue this successful record and to support colleagues who are demonstrating educational excellence we would like to encourage you to think about whether this is something for you (or for someone else you know).

Our aim is to develop a pool of potential applicants working towards future submissions.

Ulster University is able to put forward a maximum of three National Teaching Fellowship nominations and one Collaborative Award for Teaching Excellence nomination each year. The process is therefore competitive at an institutional level with the decisions as to who will go forward as the University nominees made by the Ulster NTF/CATE Committee.

If this is something that you would like to explore further please contact Dr Sarah Floyd s.floyd@ulster.ac.uk to set up a meeting to discuss NTFS and Dr Roisín Curran r.curran@ulster.ac.uk to discuss CATE.

If you wish to then be considered, please complete an initial short Expression of Interest Form by noon on September 16th 2022.
