ALPINE is the university’s framework for the recognition of excellent practice in learning and teaching and allows the university to award Fellowships of the UK Higher Education Academy (HEA).

ALPINE (Accredited Learning, Professional development and Innovation in Education) is co-ordinated through the Learning and Teaching Academy and is open to any colleagues who deliver, support or lead the development of HE-level learning and teaching. Recognition is based on educational practice and innovation, leadership, and education-related scholarship and research.

There are a number of routes to gaining these important national recognitions, including through submitting a portfolio of professional practice or successfully completing the Postgraduate Certificate in Tertiary and Higher Education. All applicants must demonstrate how their practice aligns to the UK Professional Standards Framework (UKPSF)


You can register for panels to be confirmed in November 2018 and January 2019. Registration will close on Friday 25th May 2018.
