National Teaching Fellowship Scheme was launched in 2000 to reward excellence
in teaching and learning in the higher education sector. The scheme is
administered by the Institute for Learning and Teaching in Higher Education (ILT)
on behalf of the Higher Education Funding Council for England and Department
for Employment and Learning in Northern Ireland. It is open to all higher
education institutions in England and Northern Ireland.
