Teaching Excellence Awards - call for nominations

Published: 14 February 2022

TEA recognise University teachers and contributions to learning

Teaching Excellence Awards (TEA) recognise and celebrate members of staff whose teaching and contribution to learning is of a particularly high standard. As such, they are an indicator of esteem based on peer recognition of excellence in relation to teaching, and the nomination process helps to encourage a culture of collegiality. 

There are two levels of award: College/Service Awards, from which up to two nominees per College may be considered for a University level award. College/Service awards include a non-pay award of £1000 to be spent on teaching-related and professional development activities.  The University level award is in the form of a £2,000 honorarium.  Up to five University awards will be made in any one year. 

An informal Teaching Excellence Network has been formed of all Teaching Excellence Award winners since 2005. Members of the Network have been invited to contribute their skills and expertise to a range of activities, such as training, informal mentoring, peer review and, on a consultative basis, to Learning & Teaching Committee business and strategy meetings.

Details of how to nominate and criteria are available at the link below:


The closing date for all nominations for the 2020-21 Teaching Excellence Awards is Tuesday 3 May 2022.
