If you're looking for information about how to become a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (HEA), you're in the right place.
The York St John University Continuous Professional Development (CPD) Framework brings together all our academic staff development into a single scheme that is mapped to the various descriptors (D) of the sector recognised UK Professional Standards Framework.
What this means for you is that we can assess staff in-house and award recognition to those who meet the professional standards at each of these descriptor levels. Furthermore unlike a direct application to the HEA, it will cost you nothing.
