2.4 The Higher Education Academy

The Postgraduate Certificate in Academic Practice (PGCAP) and the Associate Teaching Programme (ATP) are accredited by the Higher Education Academy (HEA). Successful completion of the PGCAP confers Fellowship status of the HEA, while completion of the ATP confers Associate status. All University HEA accredited provision is aligned to the UK professional Standards Framework for teaching and supporting learning in higher education.

Staff are also able to achieve HE Fellowship at all 4 HEA descriptors (Associate Fellow (D1), Fellow (D2), Senior Fellow (D3) and Principal Fellow (D4)) through successful completion of the University’s CPD framework, branded as “LUPE” (Loughborough University Portfolio of Evidence in Learning and Teaching).
