We support teams to develop proposals for the Collaborative Awards for Teaching Excellence (CATE).
The Higher Education Academy established a team-based award scheme, the Collaborative Awards for Teaching Excellence (CATE), funded by the Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE), the Higher Education Funding Council for Wales, and the Department for Employment and Learning in Northern Ireland.
The Collaborative Awards for Teaching Excellence (CATE) recognise that positive student experience depends on the innovation and creativity of the whole team. ARU’s Health, Education, Medicine and Social Care (HEMS) team won a Collaborative Award for Teaching Excellence in 2022. The Innovative Placements and Capacity Expansion (IPCE) team from HEMS won their Collaborative Award by developing innovative and different approaches and models for student placement provision across health and social care settings. Working closely and collaboratively with external stakeholders across the NHS and private, independent and voluntary sector in the East of England, the knowledge, skills and values of the team enabled them to respond to national and local challenges in a rapidly changing placement landscape caused by Covid.
Their innovative approaches and models for placement provision included developing a menu of short ‘spoke’ placements, reviewing alternative models for calculating placement capacity, expanding placements in the private, independent and voluntary organisations and developing virtual placements. It was imperative to the team to enhance the quality of educational experience for our healthcare students, whilst safeguarding and protecting the public and securing a future workforce.
The criteria for the awards are as follows:
