UK Professional Standards for Teaching and Supporting Learning in Higher Education and APEX Dimensions

The UK Professional Standards Framework (UKPSF) was revised in 2011 and the full version can be found on the Higher Education Academy website.

The Essential Guide to the APEX Programme explains how each Fellowship category aligns with the relevant University of Portsmouth staff target group.

The APEX Programme incorpoartes the UKPSF Dimensions of practice but also requires evidence of two extra Dimensions relating to the University of Portsmouth context.

These are:

  • P1 - The use of a range of University of Portsmouth opportunities and systems for evaluation and to reflect upon and enhance own practice.
  • P2 - A contribution to the aims of the University of Portsmouth Education Strategy relevant to role and current priorities.

These APEX Dimensions are represented in the diagram here.
