Strategic Priority 1: Reward and Recognition

Reward and recognition

We will promote teaching excellence through a systematic approach to recruitment, reward and recognition.


We will do this by:

  • Establishing recruitment approaches that evaluate teaching excellence at point of recruitment
  • Supporting the staff development needs of teaching staff at all points in their teaching career
  • Establishing clear job specifications and job descriptions that set out the requirements for teaching excellence across all relevant job families
  • Developing a UAL Teaching Excellence Profile that supports reward and recognition policies and delivery
  • Increasing engagement in HEA UK Professional Standards Framework at all levels from Associate to Principal Fellowship
  • Establishing a well recognised teaching career ladder
  • Appointing Visiting Professors to support the development of excellent teaching
  • Embedding Teaching Scholars and SUARTS/UAL teaching awards
  • Hosting internal and external seminars and conferences to lead pedagogic debate
  • Creating a UAL Teaching and Learning Journal to share and disseminate best practice
  • Increasing the numbers of staff eligible for a National Teaching Fellowship
  • Ensuring that the Teaching and Learning Exchange staff development offer meets needs of diverse job families (including library/technical/ research and academic support).
