There is a contract between the host college and the Academy that states what will be covered during the award, reporting schedules and payments schedules.

How the Visiting Teaching Engineer is to be contracted to the College should be agreed in principle before the application is submitted.

How are payments made?

As the contract is between the College and the Academy, all the funds are paid to the College at set intervals based on submission of satisfactory reports. 

We recommend that all prospective Visiting Teaching Engineers and the College agree on how payments will be made between each party before grant submission.

Can we promote the Visiting Teaching Engineers’ award and the Visiting Teaching Engineers' work externally?

Once the Academy sends a signed contract between both parties then the College and Visiting Teaching Engineer can promote the award.

Can we use the Academy logo?

The Academy, like most other organisations, has specific rules over the use of its logo and you should visit the Academy website about the logo (click here to find out more). If in doubt, you should contact Stylli Charalampous who will be able to give you a definitive answer. The fact you have been appointed as an Academy Visiting Teaching Engineer does not give you an automatic right to use the Academy logo for any purpose.
