The SDF philosophy is that Fellowship should recognise a significant contribution to the profession and its community rather than a time-served or status driven approach and is therefore open to all those who can provide evidence which meets the criteria. It is our ambition that SDF Fellowship will become the sector standard for Staff and Organisational Developers so much as SEDA Fellowship has for Educational Developers.
At the October SDF Advisory Council meeting colleagues approved the basis of an Honorary SDF Fellowship Scheme to supplement the SDF Fellowship by application by process which is now up and running. The purpose of the SDF Honorary Fellowship Scheme is to recognise those people in the Staff Development community who have self evidently over a number of years made a major contribution to staff development practice in the HE sector, and have also served members of the community as peers, supporters, advocates and valued colleagues.
