National Teaching Fellowship Scheme

National Teaching Fellowship Scheme (NTFS) 2017 and National Collaborative Awards for Teaching Excellence (CATE) 2017

The Higher Education Academy (HEA) have recently opened this year’s National Teaching Fellowship Scheme (NTFS) with a submission deadline of 19 April 2017.  They have also launched a National Collaborative Award for Teaching Excellence (CATE) with a deadline of 10 May 2017.

The University can nominate up to 3 individual members of staff for the NTFS and 1 team for the CATE Award.  Nominees to the NTFS and the team lead for the CATE should be Fellows of the HEA.  To apply to go forward as an individual or team nominee to either of these Schemes, colleagues are invited to submit an expression of interest and detailed bullet points indicating how they would meet the criteria outlined in the Award guidelines - these should be sufficiently detailed to allow the internal selection panel to make an informed decision. This should be emailed to Liz McDowell (e.mcdowell@qub.ac.uk)  by 9 March 2017.  An internal selection panel will review the submissions in mid-March.  Following selection of the individuals and team nominees, advice and support will be provided by the Centre for Educational Development to develop and format the applications for submission to the HEA.

If you have any queries about either Scheme, please contact Liz McDowell (e.mcdowell@qub.ac.uk or Ext 5301).

Further details are available in Guidelines for the National Teaching Fellowship Scheme 2017  and in the National Collaborative Award for Teaching Excellence 2017 Guidelines.  Further information about the NTFS and CATE is available on the HEA website.

The Association of National Teaching Fellows will be holding a session in Queen’s on 22 March in the Main Site Tower, Room OG/010.  The aim of the session is to support aspirant National Teaching Fellows in preparing applications in 2017 and 2018.

The session will be led by Dr Charles Buckley, Liverpool University, and will include opportunities to discuss process changes from 2016 to 2017, review some of the factors that make for successful applications and help aspirants for the Scheme in 2018 to start planning activities over the coming year to enhance their profiles demonstrating their excellent teaching.

To register to attend, please email e.mcdowell@qub.ac.uk

(Please note, the session will not focus on the Collaborative Award for Teaching Excellence (CATE) as the HEA will be briefing about CATE independently.)
