The UK Professional Standards Framework for Teaching and Supporting Learning in Higher Education
Higher Education Academy
The UK Professional Standards Framework aims to provide a general description of the main dimensions of the roles of teaching and support learning within the HE environment. The goal of the framework is to: (1) Support the initial and continuing professional development of staff engaged in teaching and supporting learning; (2) Foster dynamic approaches to teaching and learning through creativity, innovation and continuous development in diverse academic and/or professional settings; (3) Demonstrate to students and other stakeholders the professionalism that staff and institutions bring to teaching and support for student learning; (4) Acknowledge the variety and quality of teaching, learning and assessment practices that support and underpin student learning; and (5) Facilitate individuals and institutions in gaining formal recognition for quality-enhanced approaches to teaching and supporting learning, as part of wider responsibilities that may include research and/or management activities. "The UK Professional Standards Framework" is supplemented and supported by a series of Framework Guidance Notes (FGN). These are designed to highlight and disseminate good practice in a given area as well as outline issues that institutions and individuals may want to consider in using the UK Professional Standards Framework.
