Postgraduate Certificate in Teaching and Learning in Higher Education

The University is now offering a new Postgraduate Certificate designed to develop enquiry-based approaches to engaging with educational challenges and enhancing teaching and learning practice.  The course is a collaboration between the Cambridge Centre for Teaching and Learning and the Institute for Continuing Education.

Teaching Associates' Programme (TAP)

This course is aimed at early-career academics and researchers (including postdoctoral researchers, early-career college lecturers, and PhD students after the first year of doctoral study) who teach Cambridge students and is designed to encourage reflection, discussion, and constructive critique between peers and tutors.  TAP is accredited by the Higher Education Academy (HEA); those who successfully complete the programme are accredited as Associates of the HEA and obtain a nationally recognised form of teaching accreditation.

Pathways to Higher Education Practice (PHEP)

This course provides personal, flexible orientation and professional development for newly-appointed probationary Lecturers.  It is designed to complement existing inductions across the University.

Engage in Learning: A development programme for supervisors

This four-month course is for supervisors of under- and postgraduate students.  Participants have at least 3-5 years’ experience of teaching in higher education. On this theory- and practice-informed programme, supervisors explore challenges and approaches to building supportive supervisory relationships through dialogical learning activities. Readings are provided prior to each workshop.   Please note: this course is not open to PhD students.
