All staff from UK Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) are eligible for the Schemes. This includes HE in FE and alternative providers. Staff are nominated by their HEI. This includes full-time, part-time, and non-permanent staff. Further information can be found in the relevant awards guidelines. For NTFS, eligible institutions are invited to nominate up to three individual members of staff who clearly demonstrate excellence in teaching and/or supporting the HE learning experience of students. For CATE, eligible institutions are invited to nominate one team who can best demonstrate innovation, positive impact, and student collaboration.
Internal application process
At the beginning of the academic year we invite colleagues to come forward but we do continue our efforts throughout the year to identify suitable candidates. We meet with colleagues informally, where the details of the schemes are discussed, questions are answered, suitability and course of action are determined. If you can identify a colleague or a team who may be suitable or you wish to be considered yourself, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. We will make contact to organise a meeting.
Once applicants have developed their core documents, Teaching and Learning Support will provide one full set of feedback. We cannot guarantee that every team/colleague who works on an application will be chosen as one of our nominees. An internal selection panel will decide who goes forward based on their assessment of the submitted applications against the NTFS or CATE selection criteria.
