Teaching & Learning Resource Award

The UFHRD Programme and Qualification Activities Committee awards an annual prize of £500 for the best contribution to the UFHRD Teaching & Learning Resource bank. The prize will be a cheque for £500 made payable to the winning contributor (or the first named contributor in the case of multiple contributors).

The Award is open to all i.e non members as well as members of UFHRD. The prize will be awarded to the Resource that, in the opinion of the judging panel, meets the following criteria most strongly.
