National Teaching Fellowship Scheme

National Teaching Fellowship Scheme logo

The National Teaching Fellowship Scheme (NTFS) celebrates and recognises individuals, who have made an outstanding impact on student outcomes and the teaching profession in higher education. The University nominates up to three individuals per competition round. Usually, it takes several years of planning, evidence collecting and professional development to devise the NTFS application. So, it is never too early to discuss how to get started!

The scheme is led nationally by Advance HE and managed at the University by the Centre for Academic Development. Further NTFS 2023 guidance and information is available.

The award has been running since 2000 and there are now 1,034 National Teaching Fellows, with up to 55 individuals receiving the award each year. On gaining the award, fellows play an ongoing role in enhancing teaching and learning within their institution, the HE sector and further afield.

The Advance HE Teaching Excellence Award Lead is Dr Joy Perkins, Centre for Academic Development (
