Principle 6:

Recognition and rewards

We recognise and reward the achievements of staff and students who perform high quality KE activities.


Key enablers could include :


Clear indicators of what is considered high-quality KE within the context of the institution’s strategy and good practice standards.


Defined approaches to recognising and rewarding successful and innovative KE activities and outcomes within promotions criteria and reward processes for academic and professional services staff.


Defined approaches to institutional recognition of successful KE by academic staff and students via processes other than formal promotion and reward, such as revenue-sharing policies, staff prizes and the celebration of success stories.


A published approach to how KE activities are recognised within workloads and rewarded with time allocations appropriately.


Clear reporting processes allow the institution to know whether its policies are being followed.


Approaches towards recognition and rewards that celebrate institutional achievements as well as those of individuals.
