The English Subject Centre is one of the 24 Centres of the subject network of the Higher Education Academy. We work closely with our colleagues at York to support and develop learning and teaching in our subject communities (which span the range of Literature, English Language, and Creative Writing). Through the subject associations (particularly CCUE – the Council for College and University English), and its own contacts, the English Subject Centre has a strong and developmental relationship with the university English community across the UK.
These pages have been written with the leaders of HE Academy Accredited Programmes in mind. We are aware that it is not always simple for colleagues in university centres for Educational Development / Academic Practice to access or evaluate information about the provision made by Subject Centres for the development of newly-appointed academic staff. These pages highlight the range of provision offered by the English Subject Centre in a form readily accessible for use in HE Academy accredited programmes.
In particular, we map our provision for recently appointed staff onto the UK Professional Standards Framework.
The Pool, our collection of open educational resources for professional development will soon be available.
