National Teaching Fellows

The Higher Education Academy National Teaching Fellowship Scheme logo

From 2006 the Higher Education Academy's National Teaching Fellowship Scheme (NTFS) has two separate strands:

Individual Awards and Projects, with total funding per year of £2.5 million.

NTFS Individual Awards

The Individual Award recognises and rewards individual excellence in teaching in higher education in England and Northern Ireland. Fifty Individual Awards of £10,000 have been made in 2007 to be used for personal development in learning and teaching. Further information about the award holders is available from the individual awards homepage.

NTFS Project Strand

The project strand of the National Teaching Fellowship Scheme (NTFS) presents opportunities for higher education institutions to work with National Teaching Fellows to build on current expertise for their own benefit and that of the wider higher education sector. Teams will be able to bid for funds of up to £200,000 for use over a period of up to three years.

Below are details of Education National Teaching Fellows, by year of award.
