Higher Education Academy fellowships have been around since 2006, prior to that they were awarded through ILTHE.  But in recent years there has been a growth, globally. This paper will explore the impact professional recognition through HEA Fellowships on the individuals who have engaged in reflection on their practice. HEA Fellowships accommodate a broad spectrum of staff who are involved in supporting learning in higher education. Professional recognition extends beyond academic staff, and includes technicians, patients involved in health related courses, student support, library staff, research supervisors and senior university leaders.  The personal drivers to engage go beyond the award of post nominals and institutional directives.
