As a national and independent organisation we are at the forefront of innovation in learning and teaching in HE. Our vision is for UK HE to be recognised both nationally and internationally for its pursuit and attainment of excellence.

Our work is focused on bringing together individuals and organisations in HE to continually enhance teaching practice, maximise student learning and inspire the pursuit of excellence in learner-focused HE teaching.

Because the work we do is so important, we are very selective about the people we employ.

If you can demonstrate your commitment to our vision, mission and values, and you are willing to go the extra mile to make a real impact, we would be pleased to receive and progress your application for employment with us.
