You might be surprised to hear that only 38 per cent of University academics in the UK hold a teaching qualification (HEFCE, 2015). In the School of Psychology, 80 per cent do, and we require all new staff to qualify for a fellowship of the Higher Education Academy by taking the University's Postgraduate Certificate in Academic Practice (PGCAP).
HEA Fellowship is an international recognition of a commitment to professionalism in teaching and learning in higher education. Senior Fellows are experienced members of academic staff with significant responsibility for leading, managing or organising programmes. Fellows have a proven, sustained track record in HE teaching, with substantive teaching and learning responsibilities. Associate Fellows are usually early-career researchers with some teaching responsibilities.
This page lists all of the staff in the School of Psychology who hold a teaching qualification.
