Learning and Teaching Practice
This portfolio program is intentionally designed to be inclusive of the activities and experiences which already make up your career in higher education.
Become an HEA Principal Fellow
Principal Fellowship (PFHEA) is the highest recognition category of HEA Fellowship. PFHEA recognises highly experienced professionals, able to provide evidence of a sustained and effective record of impact at a strategic level in relation to teaching and learning.
Principal Fellows are typically:
- highly experienced and/or senior staff with wide-ranging academic or academic-related strategic leadership responsibilities in connection with key aspects of teaching and supporting learning
- staff responsible for institutional strategic leadership and policymaking in the area of teaching and learning
- staff who have strategic impact and influence in relation to teaching and learning that extends beyond their own institution.

Not sure if Principal Fellow is the right category of HEA Fellowship for you? The Fellowship Category Tool from AdvanceHE will ask you a series of multiple choice questions to help you understand the category of Fellowship that most closely reflects your current practice.
How do I apply?
In 2020, Griffith will continue to use the Advance HE Direct application route for PFHEA applications, including Advance HE resources and Assessors. The application process involves:
