Despite a history of criticism of the UK Professional Standards Framework and the HEA Fellowship Scheme, there has been almost no critical analysis, or alternatives proposed. A couple of years ago the Royal Academy of Engineering produced an alternative model, with a forward from the then Minister of Higher Education. Here is follow up report, again with support from the new minister.
I suspect, as with the previous report there will be little coverage of this. This silence is of course interesting. The HEA, now gloriously called Advance HE , will claim that the UKPSF had been influential in the sector, which is now fully engaged with it. The lack of critical discussion (we are talking academics) and the publication of an alternative with government support but little discussion, suggests otherwise.
