Education and Scholarship career pathway

Introduction

The linked documents set out the framework for career progression in the Education and Scholarship job family within the University. The posts in the Education and Scholarship job family and the Education and Research job family are deemed equivalent in terms of esteem and contribution within the University.

These documents show all grades in the Education and Scholarship career pathway and for each grade details:

  • a summary of the activities which a member of staff at that level should be undertaking, to a successful and effective standard (the top box)
  • the evidence which must be demonstrated - over a sustained period (at least one academic year at Exeter) by a member of staff - in order to achieve promotion to the next level/grade (the middle box). Examples of these are shown in the shaded bottom box

against each of the following core activities of staff in the Education and Scholarship job family:

  • Teaching practice
  • Management/sdministration and core/education management
  • Communications, esteem and scholarship
  • Student/staff support
  • External affairs

together with minimum requirements on qualifications/HEA Fellowship.

The examples (shown in the shaded bottom box) of the evidence which must be demonstrated in each of the core activities in order to achieve promotion to the next level/grade are not prescriptive. Similarly, the framework does not seek to be completely exhaustive or definitive, rather it is designed to be indicative of the level the University would expect.

The examples given are generic and it is recognised that the specific requirements and opportunities will differ between subject disciplines. The requirements of the University and College and the opportunities which will be available to staff will also differ over time as College priorities change. Through the PDR process, Academic Leads and individual members of staff should align personal aspirations (eg for career development and promotion) with the needs of the College, set out in the College Business Plan.
