An academic from the Vaughan Centre for Lifelong Learning at the University of Leicester has been awarded Fellowship of the Higher Education Academy (HEA).

The HEA is a national body which champions teaching quality. Fellowship of the HEA is an international recognition of a commitment to professionalism in teaching and learning in higher education.

Tina Holt, Course Director of the CertHE Counselling, has received this award in recognition of attainment against the UK Professional Standards Framework for teaching and learning support in Higher Education.

Tina has taught Counselling at our Vaughan Centre for Lifelong Learning for four years.

Prior to this, Tina worked clinically with children, young people and adults both multi-agency and voluntary organisations. She also taught at voluntary organisations on subjects relating to counselling and the law; ethics and working practice.

Tina said: "I am so happy to have reached fellowship of the HEA. The training to fellowship was both rewarding and challenging but so worthwhile."

Nalita James, Acting Head of Department, added: “This is excellent news for Tina and the Department as our HEA Fellowship goes from strength to strength. It reaffirms our external recognition and excellence in teaching and learning.”
