National Teaching Fellowship Scheme (NTFS)

The National Teaching Fellowship Scheme (NTFS) celebrates excellent practice and outstanding achievement in learning and teaching in higher education.

The awards support individuals’ professional development in learning and teaching. Success depends only on excellence, not what stage you are at in your career. The awards are presented at a prestigious ceremony, attracting national and regional media interest.

The HEA manages NTFS on behalf of the funders – the Higher Education Funding Council for England, the Higher Education Funding Council for Wales, and the Department for the Economy (DfE) Northern Ireland (now incorporating the responsibilities of DELNI).

NTFS 2016 is now closed.

A community of excellence

Being awarded a National Teaching Fellowship is just the beginning. National Teaching Fellows (NTFs) are an active community of passionate and enthusiastic professionals, working to enhance learning and teaching in their institutions and the sector. There are currently nearly 700 NTFs, representing more than 40 discipline areas. The HEA provides support for individual NTFs and the Association of National Teaching Fellows (ANTF).
