The Beacon Scheme

Suitable for: Experienced staff wishing to gain recognition for their professional practice, staff for whom the PGCHE is not appropriate.

The Beacon Scheme is the University of Birmingham’s scheme that is accredited by Advance HE to award Associate Fellowship, Fellowship and Senior Fellowship. It sits alongside the taught programmes as a pathway towards gaining a HESA-recognition teaching qualification / recognition.

If you have a role within the University that involves teaching and/or supporting learning, Beacon Professional Recognition allows you to apply for recognition internally through an individual, peer-supported process. All staff employed by the University (academic or professional services) can join the scheme.
