About ELTS

Evidencing Learning and Teaching Skills (ELTS) is an Advance HE accredited pathway to gaining recognition as an Associate Fellow of the HEA (AFHEA). It is intended for Postgraduates Who Teach (PGRwT) at Newcastle University who are keen to develop their early career as a teaching academic in Higher Education (HE).  

The syllabus and assessment of ELTS are based on the UK Professional Standards Framework for teaching and supporting learning, as developed by Advance HE (previously known as the Higher Education Academy). As such, the learning materials and workshops are designed to introduce and develop the participant’s knowledge and application of teaching and supporting learning as a professional practice as described in the UKPSF.

The outcome of ELTS is a submission for Associate Fellowship of the HEA (AFHEA) which is assessed as part of Newcastle University’s UKSPF CPD Scheme.
