Introducing a Scholarship Rating Scale


Patrick Leonard, Hull College Group


This toolkit is an institutional resource designed for colleges of all sizes and development stages. It will take HE managers through a process which will result in:

1) Establishing an institutional definition for scholarship
2) Identifying a method for collecting information on individual staff scholarship
3) Identifying a method appropriate to the institution for rating staff scholarship
4) Embedding these processes into the college polices and strategies.
