I have come across a few questions similar to the following during academic job application process at UK HEIs. I think I understand and I am aware of the choices from 2 to 10. However, option 1 confuses me, I'll be more specific below.
Please indicate if you have successfully completed a higher education teaching qualification or any other relevant teaching qualification
- Successfully completed an institutional provision in teaching in the higher education sector accredited against the UK Professional Standards Framework
- Recognised by the HEA as an Associate Fellow
- Recognised by the HEA as a Fellow
- Recognised by the HEA as a Senior Fellow
- Recognised by the HEA as a Principal Fellow
- Holder of a National Teaching Fellowship Scheme Individual Award
- Holder of a PGCE in secondary education, further education, lifelong learning or any other equivalent qualification
- Accredited as a teacher of their subject by a professional body
- Other accreditation or qualification in teaching in the higher education sector
- Overseas accreditation or qualification for any level of teaching
When I was a PhD student at a UK university, I completed a one-day workshop on “Survival Skills in Teaching” which was required before I could be TA. So, does this training satisfy option 1? In addition, I have attended two to three days faculty development trainings overseas (outside UK). Do these trainings allow me to pick any of the choices?
I will much appreciate if anyone could shed some light on this.
