Colleagues who teach, supervise, assess or support students’ learning, in any role, can gain recognition for their teaching with a UCL Arena fellowship, accredited by the Higher Education Academy.

UCL Arena is a scheme of awards accredited by Advance HE, giving teaching and support staff nationally recognised fellowships. UCL Arena offers several pathways to professional recognition, catering for staff at different stages in their university teaching career: from postgraduate teaching assistants and lecturers on probation to programme leaders, senior staff with strategic roles, and professional services staff who support teaching.

As a reflection of UCL’s strategic focus on teaching excellence, gaining an HEA fellowship is an explicit criterion in UCL’s Academic Career Framework, which facilitates the recognition and reward of our staff. 

Dr Liston commented “I’m very pleased at the recognition – a good opportunity also to thank my remote-not-distant colleagues in the IoN Education Team for their valuable support and advice.”
