Collaborative Awards for Teaching Excellence (CATE)

Group of five people at a gathering from Lord Ashcroft International Business School

We help support and develop proposals for the Collaborative Awards for Teaching Excellence (CATE).

In 2016 the Higher Education Academy established a new course-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 course team. CATE was piloted in 2016 and the Student Engagement Team from our Lord Ashcroft International Business School made it onto the short list. They received their certificate from the Higher Education Academy on 22 June 2017.
