STAR workshops

We offer two workshops and a series of drop-in sessions aimed at supporting your journey towards HEA recognition

STAR Framework

Introductory workshop

The STAR introductory workshop opens by outlining the Imperial STAR Framework and the HEA's UK Professional Standards Framework (UKPSF). Participants will then establish which level of recognition best matches their current level of experience before beginning the process of mapping their practice to the UKPSF (at Higher Education Academy).

Pre-submission workshop

The STAR pre-submission workshop employs a combination of self-assessment, peer-assessment and tutor input to assess each delegate’s learning outcomes and practice against the UKPSF (at Higher Education Academy). A fundamental focus of the workshop is to identify areas for development to the written application prior to submission.
