The MMU Professional Standards Framework Scheme (PSF)

Would you like to achieve formal recognition of your role in teaching and/or supporting learning? The MMU PSF scheme is designed to provide MMU staff with an internal professional development route to HEA fellowship recognition at four levels, integrated with MMU's well-established, internal, HEA accredited Academic Practice programmes. NB this is the new PSF Scheme in operation from September 2016.

1. What is the MMU PSF Scheme and why should I apply?

This podcast explains the structure and provision of the MMU PSF Scheme:

 

This set of resources is aimed at staff applying for HEA Fellowship via the recognition route. We recommend that early career staff who wish to gain Associate Fellowship or Fellowship consider the programme route via either the Postgraduate Certificate in Learning and Teaching in HE. Here is some guidance to help you decide which route is most appropriate for you:
