The Cambridge Teaching & Learning Recognition Scheme is for Cambridge educators who wish to apply for accreditation as a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy and already have the teaching and reflective experience needed to do so. Participants on the Scheme are supported in drafting a successful application over the course of a Term, and these applications are then assessed internally.

If you have any questions about the Scheme not answered on this page or in the Handbook, please get in touch with Dr Kamilah Jooganah.

Multiple cycles of the Scheme run over the course of the year. We are not currently open for new participants; expressions of interest for 2024-25 will open early summer.


Key dates

Participants on the Scheme are expected to attend three face-to-face sessions, which are designed to support you in understanding the process and crafting a successful application. The dates for Cycle 2 are provided below; all dates are available in the Handbook.

Associate Fellow applicants (D1):

  1. Monday 22 January: Introduction to Fellowship
  2. Wednesday 14 February: Progress Review
  3. Wednesday 6 March: Finalising your Application

Fellow and Senior Fellow applicants (D2 and D3):

  1. Friday 26 January: Introduction to Fellowship
  2. Wednesday 28 February: Progress Review
  3. Friday 22 March: Finalising your Application


Fellowship categories

Advance HE offer accreditation at four categories of Fellowship; for a full description of these, see their Dimensions of the UK Professional Standards Framework.

Applications for Principal Fellowship (D4) are not currently supported through the Scheme. If you are interested in applying for D4, please take a look at our Fellowship Guidance site on Moodle.


Expressions of interest

Expressions of interest for 2024-25 will open early summer.

As places are limited, we ask that you submit an Expression of Interest form via Moodle if you would like to participate. This will let us assess your potential eligibility for Fellowship before you invest more substantial time into drafting a full application.

Please visit the Recognition Scheme Expressions of Interest site on Moodle for more information, the form, and to submit.
