National Teaching Fellowship Scheme (NTFS)

(Celebrating outstanding achievement in learning and teaching in higher education)

As part of the University’s commitment to celebrating and rewarding excellence in learning and teaching, we encourage and support colleagues to apply for a National Teaching Fellowship. We are putting out a call for colleagues who may be interested in becoming one of three potential University nominees to enter the National Teaching Fellowship scheme for 2016, with the opportunity of winning a nationally prestigious award which carries with it monetary support for an individuals’ professional development in learning and teaching. Success depends only on excellence, not what stage colleagues are at in their career. The awards are presented at a prestigious ceremony, attracting national and regional media interest. As a successful National Teaching Fellow you would join an active community of passionate and enthusiastic professionals, working to enhance learning and teaching both here at Portsmouth and in the wider HE sector. There are currently 643 NTFs, representing more than 40 discipline areas.

We will be organising a briefing session, early in the new year, for anyone who is interested in knowing more about the scheme and the internal selection process. Potential candidates may be self-nominating as well as being nominated by line managers and Heads of Department. In the meantime, if you would like further information please contact phil.verrill@port.ac.uk or visit the HEA website: www.heacademy.ac.uk
