UCFB is a proud member of The Higher Education Academy (HEA), the national body which champions teaching excellence.

Our membership with the HEA enables our academic staff to gain access to best practice ideas and knowledge thanks to the HEA’s focus on improving approaches to teaching, and individual teaching practice, to help improve the student journey into, through and beyond higher education.

The HEA is recognised globally for inspiring teaching excellence to inspire and drive student success. All UCFB academic staff are encouraged to use the HEA, its members and resources to develop their own skillsets and quality of teaching methods.
