The University has achieved good success in recent rounds of the scheme notably with Dr Gita Sedghi winning an Individual Award in 2019.
The scheme aims to:
Call for expressions of interest in submitting an application for an award in 2021

Lunchtime information workshops at University of Liverpool – Autumn 2020
For colleagues who are interested in submitting an expression of interest for either NTF or CATE, the Academy is running several informal lunchtime information sessions which will be run by Charles Buckley and Gita Sedghi between 12pm and 1pm on 23rd September, 14th October and 4th November 2020
Decisions on which candidates are to be asked to prepare a full application will be made by a steering group that works to the Pro Vice Chancellor for Education, with senior representation included from each Faculty. The group expects to select up to three individual members of staff to prepare the full application for NTF and up to one CATE team. Those chosen will be allocated mentors.
The process within the University for applications under the scheme is coordinated by The Leadership, Organisational, Professional & Academic Development Academy (“The Academy”).
