What is the Scholarship Framework?

The Scholarship Framework is a free toolkit of resources aimed at supporting English colleges with higher education provision to enhance student learning through forms of scholarship.

In the framework you will find a wide range of resources that have been researched and approved by key college higher education experts.

At its core there are resources aimed at institutional level, these have been designed to be incorporated into college wide scholarship policies. You will also find resources aimed more at the individual practitioner and a forum aimed at developing a wider community of college higher education practice.

Using the framework’s resources can also help improve a college’s Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF) commentary, provider submission in the Quality Review Visit (QRV) process and preparation for achieving degree awarding powers (DAP).
