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 Advance HE Professional Standards Framework (PSF 2023). 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 PSF.

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 Advance HE Professional Standards Framework (PSF 2023). 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.

Individual support sessions

We run a series of individual support sessions to support you through the application process. These 20 minute sessions will allow you to work on an application in progress or to discuss a potential application with a member of the EDU team. These sessions are held online in Microsoft Teams. Please see list of available dates and times below and book your slot online.
