Weightings

Weightings are an opportunity for you to signal to the panel your judgement of your overall contribution and where you have had the most significant impact in your work.  You will be asked in your application to allocate a weighting to each of the criterion – teaching and scholarship, research and engagement.  It is important to note that weightings are not a reflection of your workload or the proportion of time allocated to a task.  In the context of academic promotion, the focus of weightings is on your achievements and outcomes and their impact and influence with reference to the level you are applying for.  Those activities that you weight most heavily will receive a greater weighting in the panel’s assessment of the overall merit of the case.   

You will be required to submit your weightings in the embedded text box in the online application form.  You are not required to include weightings in your commentary or CV. 

Weightings should total 100% and sit within the following boundaries: 

 

Teaching and Research Academic appointments

30-50%

60-90%

Promotion panels may vary the weighting if that will benefit you.

 

In exceptional circumstances, a promotion panel may accept a higher weighting from you for engagement and a subsequent change to the teaching or research weighting (where applicable) based on prior written approval from the Provost & Chief Academic Officer (Level B or C) or the Vice Chancellor (Level D or E).
