First faculty member at the University of Wolverhampton awarded PFHEA Status

An academic member of staff at the University of Wolverhampton is the first to achieve Principal Fellow HEA (PFHEA) status from a faculty setting. 

Peter Robinson awarded PFHEA

Dr Peter Robinson, Head of Marketing, Innovation, and Leisure and Enterprise department within the Faculty of Social Sciences is the first to have achieved PFHEA Status from a faculty.  This recognition serves on an international and national platform.  For our students it enhances learning and teaching at the University of Wolverhampton Business School, demonstrating the university’s commitment to encourage staff to deliver the highest standards of teaching.  This makes it stimulating and engaging for a diverse range of students, thus making it a “University of Opportunity” for all prospective students.

Dr Robinson said, “I am delighted to have been recognised as a Principal Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.  This is a reflection of my experience teaching a wide range of students in the UK.  This reflects the development of best practice in learning and teaching, which is embedded in my own work and the ethos my entire department.  A key element of achieving this recognition is the emphasis placed on a commitment to supporting others developing their learning and teaching techniques.  I am looking forward to supporting my colleagues in also achieving HEA recognition.
