STAR workshops

The Educational Development Unit (EDU) offers two workshops and a series of drop-in support sessions aimed at supporting your journey towards HEA recognition

STAR workshops

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.

If you are thinking of applying for Senior Fellowship, we recommend you attend our STAR introductory workshop - Senior Fellowship.

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 UKSPF. A fundamental focus of the workshop is to identify areas for development to the written application prior to submission. If this workshop is fully booked, you may join the waiting list or attend a drop-in session (see right column). Please note that you must have a draft copy of your application ready in order to attend this workshop.

Drop-in support sessions

We run a series of drop-in sessions to support you through the application process. These sessions will allow you to work on your applications alongside fellow applicants and an EDU member of staff.

All sessions will be held in Meeting Room 1, Level 5 Sherfield Building, unless otherwise indicated. Take the lift or stairs to the 5th floor, turn right and right again through the double doors and enter the open plan office. Meeting Room 1 is on the right after the small kitchen - please let yourself in.
