PROCESS FOR PROMOTION PROCEDURES FOR TEACHING FELLOWS
Process for progression to Senior Teaching Fellow (grade 8)
Regrading from Teaching Fellow (grade 7) to Senior Teaching Fellow(grade 8) can be considered at any time either on the Head of Department's*1 positive recommendation or following direct application by the individual. Local variations in practice exist to promote equitable treatment for staff, including in SLMS – where applications are reviewed at fixed points in the year. Staff should consult their Faculty Intranet pages for details.
The regrading form is available here.
Specification of material to be provided by the candidate to the Head of Department:
- A Curriculum Vitae which must contain at least the required elements specified at Curriculum Vitae Preparation
- a brief self-assessment indicating how the candidate's teaching and other activities match the criteria for promotion on not more than one side of A4; a detailed description of the teaching is not required in this statement, but the candidate may wish to indicate its impact and future direction.
The Head of Department*1 should then assess the case using the criteria in section 1 above. Once agreed s/he should write to HR Consultancy Services requesting formal confirmation of the promotion. When financial approval has been verified (for any grant funded cases), Human Resources will send a new contract to the individual and arrange for payroll action to be taken.
Process for promotion to Principal Teaching Fellow (grade 9):
Proposals for promotion to Principal Teaching Fellow (grade 9) are incorporated into the annual Senior Promotions exercise.
The Senior Promotions Process Document defines the process to be followed and the timetable for the complete exercise.
