Recognition events

The HEA's professional recognition team organises events for both existing Fellows and prospective applicants looking to gain HEA Fellowship across disciplines, specialisms and levels of experience.

Recognition writing retreats

Our writing retreats are designed for colleagues with experience of professional practice in higher education who would like to develop their own application for Senior or Principal Fellowship of the HEA. The event provides time and space to think, discuss and reflect on professional practice away from busy day-to-day working lives.

Those who have attended previous writing retreats have told us that they are “well organised”, “well run” and “very helpful".

All of our writing retreats for 2015/16 have now taken place. You can find out more about our writing retreats for 2016/17 and book your place by following the links below as they become available.
