Launched in 2006 and last revised in 2011, the Professional Standards Framework for teaching and supporting learning in higher education (PSF) has global recognition for raising the profile of teaching and learning in higher education. The PSF’s contribution to reward and recognition is unsurpassed, being used by individuals, institutions and national bodies.
Fully revised and streamlined, the PSF 2023 emphasises effectiveness and impact, inclusion and context, as fundamental aspects of practice. As a more inclusive Framework that recognises the critical role of context in which practice takes place, the PSF 2023 will be more accessible to all professionals with a role in teaching and/or supporting learning. Its focus on effectiveness and impact of practice drives attention to improved outcomes for learners across the global community. The concise, streamlined approach offers clarity and ease of use in professional development, leadership of teaching and learning, strategic enhancement and in Fellowship and accreditation settings.

Professional Standards Framework for teaching and supporting learning in higher education: report of the review 2021-2023
As sector custodians of the PSF, Advance HE recognised that a review of the PSF was an imperative to ensure it retains currency and relevance to practice in an ever-evolving environment.
The review process was independent, strongly sector led and evidence based. Comprehensive and repeated consultation facilitated a co-creative environment from which the PSF 2023 emerged. This report details that review process, and explores some of the most prominent changes to the revised Framework.
