Pathways to HEA Fellowship at Monash
Monash has two routes to HEA Fellowship available to staff:
Program: Teaching Excellence Program Duration: 9 months leading to HEA Fellow (FHEA).
Program: Education Excellence Program
Duration: 6 months (with mentoring) leading to HEA Associate Fellow (AFHEA), Fellow (FHEA), Senior Fellow (SFHEA).
This is for staff post probation.
Teaching Excellence Program
This program is designed for academic staff who are in their period of probation at Monash University. The program meets the conditions of their probation.
Teaching Excellence Program (TEP) is a part time, practice-based program. It aims to introduce staff to key practices and procedures that support teaching at Monash. It consists of two workshops, online learning through Moodle and drop-in sessions during the course of the program. Workshop attendance is compulsory in order to complete this program.
The program relies on current participation in learning and teaching practice so that staff are able to draw on authentic practice to evidence their claim for fellowship through the assessment tasks. It is assumed that staff are engaged in all aspects related to teaching for at least 60 hours over the time they are participating in the program.
We have designed TEP so that successful completion of this program will lead you to HEA Fellowship (FHEA) . For more information please visit the Advance HE website.

Education Excellence Program
Aspiring staff at Monash with a sustained track record in Higher Education will have the opportunity to apply for HEA Fellowship through the Education Excellence program.
The written application requires evidence of performance which can also be used to inform performance milestones and conversations at Monash. Participants in this pathway will be provided with a mentor through the MEA who will support the development of their application.
During 2020 and 2021, Monash will be supporting a limited number of applications via the experiential route as we embed HEA Fellowship programs at Monash.
