Staff Development Funds

Personal development - Staff development applications

CPD activities across the university are aimed at further developing academic scholarship, curriculum development and research. Programmes to achieve these aims are coordinated by the Staff Development Officers. These include local opportunities through academic partners and funded activities through UHI’s Staff Development Fund. The Fund supports activity that updates or maintains the knowledge of an individual or team; or adds to their skills and experience.

For information on all staff development funds and to download the SD1 application form please go to the Staff Development Funding page on the university Intranet: (this link will only work when accessed from the university network)

Learning and Teaching Academy Scholarship Fund

The Learning and Teaching Academy awards a small number of scholarships each year to enable university staff to undertake relevant education-related scholarship and research. Learning and Teaching Academy scholarship calls are often linked to current or emerging issues of particular interest to the university, or which are topical within the education sector. However the scholarships can also be focused on the further development of existing pedagogic research projects.

The outputs of scholarship projects typically take the form of reports, with recommendations to guide effective practice and further research, or may also be produced as academic papers for a chosen education or discipline-related journal.

Further information on open calls and making an application on the LTA webpages.
