Our Supported Scheme

Each year we can nominate 3 candidates for NTF and 3 teams for CATE from our institution to Advance HE. Selected nominees submit an application that showcases their reach, value, and impact they have had on learning and teaching. Our team, made up of colleagues from the Academic and Learning Enhancement (ALE) team, previous NTF and CATE award holders, and trained NTF and CATE assessors, are here to help you.

Through our supported scheme, those selected to be nominated will be assigned a mentor from our team. Your mentor will be able to answer questions and provide feedback on your draft applications to help you fully showcase your achievements.
