Reward and Recognition
Our strategy was built on the premise that we should recognise and reward those who had contributed to the development of the UPC Partnership and are going to continue to do so.
The CETL, with the support of FE management, recognised and rewarded excellent staff. There were three main strategies in place to achieve this aim:
1. Through CETL Fellowships and CPD Awards which sought to redress the problem of providing appropriate rewards and recognition for teachers of HE in FE. These staff were employed on FE contracts and their HE teaching contribution was not easily rewarded within prevailing contractual arrangements. Award holders did not only receive funding through this arrangement, but also received enhanced opportunities for professional development and future enhanced prospects of promotion.

2. Through work on a range of CETL funded research and development projects that aimed to take forward the strategic priorities of UPC. To find out more, please follow the links on this site to the Development Activities .
3. The two approaches outlined above were supported by work to support the creation and development of technologically supported, subject based and thematic Communities of Practice. This work helped to build peer to peer recognition as well as recognition within and across institutions.
