Bath Scheme

This scheme enables experienced staff to gain Fellowship from the Higher Education Academy in recognition of their teaching, supervision and/or learning support

How the Bath Scheme works

You can apply for Fellowship from the Higher Education Academy (HEA) at one of three categories depending on your role and the range of your teaching, supervision and/or learning support activities:

  • Associate Fellow (AFHEA)
  • Fellow (FHEA)
  • Senior Fellow (SFHEA)

Principal Fellow (PFHEA) is currently not currently included with The Bath Scheme. You can get PFHEA via an individual entry route to the HEA. For further details and support, please contact Dr Rachael Carkett.

Contact your Bath Scheme Champion to find out if you are eligible to register. We have drawn up some case studies to give you an idea of the experience that is required.

Getting a fellowship gives you:

  • recognition of your professional practice in learning and teaching
  • evidence you can use for promotion
  • an opportunity to benchmark your professional practice against the UK Professional Standards Framework (UKPSF)

Experienced staff who have Fellowship assess the applications. If you want to be involved as an assessor in the Bath Scheme, please complete the expression of interest form and return it to the Bath Scheme administrator.
