    By achieving Senior Fellowship of Advance HE, you will gain recognition of the value you bring to your professional practice and demonstrate a sustained record of effectiveness in relation to higher education teaching and learning. This can incorporate, for example, the organisation, leadership and/or management of learning and teaching provision. Furthermore, gaining SFHEA is a key criterion in applying for promotion to Principal Lecturer for the Student Experience and acts as a proxy measure of teaching quality in the TEF.

    Do not miss this opportunity for some space, time and support to complete and submit your SFHEA application!
