Leadership in Education Awards Programme (LEAP)

LEAP supports you in documenting and evidencing your teaching excellence, and is an opportunity for you to receive a formal, national qualification for your teaching.

The programme is accredited by AdvanceHE (formally the Higher Education Academy (HEA)) and many of our graduate teaching assistants have completed the programme in order to be awarded an Associate HEA Fellowship (AFHEA).

You can complete the AFHEA programme through a 10-minute pre-recorded oral presentation route or via a written portfolio (1,500 words).

You will also need to submit two references and a mapping document which demonstrates how your experience maps to the UK Professional Standards Framework (UKPSF).

Further information about the LEAP programme is available by contacting the LEAP Administrator at
