National Teaching Professional Standards
The UK Professional Standards Framework for teaching and supporting learning in higher education is a flexible framework developed by the Higher Education Academy which uses a descriptor-based approach to professional standards.
The framework uses three standard descriptors to map roles and career stages of those engaged in teaching and supporting learning. The standard descriptors are underpinned by areas of professional activity, core knowledge and professional values.
