The University is committed to supporting the professional development of its staff members. For those with teaching and leadership responsibilities, there is an expectation that you will obtain recognition through the UK Professional Standards Framework. We offer a programme – Advance UWL (subject to accreditation) which confers the post nominals of AFHEA, FHEA, SFHEA and PFHEA, which are internationally recognised. If you would like to apply for recognition, you can complete a short online survey  which will enable us to ensure you are applying for the correct standard.
