For She’s a Principal Fellow
In recognition of her attainment against the UK Professional Standards Framework for teaching and learning support in higher education, and in a first for the College, our Director of Teaching and Learning, Dr Trisha Eaton has achieved the distinguished and internationally recognised status of Principal Fellowship of the Higher Education Academy (PFHEA) – a status that is awarded to just 1% of the 150 000 HEA Fellows globally in recognition of attainment against the UK Professional Standards Framework for teaching and learning support in higher education .
Commenting, on her award, Prof. Heggarty said: “This is a wonderful and richly deserved award for Trisha, which not only recognises her dedication to expertly leading teaching and learning here but exemplifies her total commitment to providing learners with an exceptional experience throughout their studies.”
With her mathematical background, Trisha was further delighted “by the nice palindromic date of award (22022022), which pleases my mathematical brain immensely!”
