New staff development opportunity available

We​ are ​delighted​ to ​announce the launch of the​ Academic Professional Apprenticeship​. This is a new​ staff development route, which has been specifically designed to support and enhance the progression of early career teaching staff, ​​at the University of Portsmouth. The apprenticeship is referenced to the UK Professional Standard Framework​ and​ encompasses​ a P​g​​Cert​ in Higher Education alongside​ Fellowship of the Higher Education Academy (​FHEA).​​

Apprenticeships for University staff are paid for by the Apprenticeship Levy, which is a mandatory contribution the University must pay based on a percentage of its annual pay bill. This means that staff can achieve​ a formal qualification​ without the financial costs, in addition to being fully supported during their development activities, which are predominately situated within the workplace.

​The ​University Executive Board (UEB) has provided its endorsement for existing ​​staff to consider participating in ​this development opportunity​, subject to the approval of their line manager​, as ​part of our ongoing commitment to maintaining​ high quality teaching provision and further enhancing our TEF Gold award. You can find more information online.
