This is one of the SEDA-PDF named awards available through SEDA’s Professional Development Framework. It is of particular relevance to staff working in post-compulsory education whose posts involve a substantial element of research.
Whilst a number of awards within the SEDA Professional Development Framework focus upon learning and teaching, SEDA is also committed to supporting the continuing professional development of staff involved in broader aspects of educational practice. This award reflects the national interest of HEIs, UK research funding bodies, HEFCE and the government, in the career development and management of staff engaged in research-related activities through initiatives such as the Concordat (1996, 2008), the Athena Project and Vitae’s Researcher Development Framework (Vitae, 2010). This award maps to the four domains of Vitae’s Researcher Development Framework .
This award is for staff employed in post-compulsory education whose posts involve research-based activities. Staff undertaking such research duties may be employed on full or part-time contracts that are permanent or fixed term; they may be conducting research individually or as part of a team, within a centre, department, school or faculty, or on a contract basis in response to the requirements of an external party. They may be employed as lecturers, carrying both teaching and research responsibilities, or in posts focused exclusively on research. This award recognises the diverse context within which research is undertaken and is therefore targeted at a broad range of colleagues from any discipline.
