Higher Education Academy: Briefing
Many UK universities now expect teaching and learning staff seeking tenure to have undertaken or to undertake a structured teaching and learning development course accredited by the HE Academy. This 1.5-hour small-group meeting provides an overview of how individuals may apply to the Higher Education Academy to gain accreditation of their teaching experience, as well as an introduction to the work of the Higher Education Academy (https://www.heacademy.ac.uk/).
Please note: this briefing does not explore approaches to teaching and learning and is focussed solely on explaining the process of applying to the HE Academy for recognition of teaching experience.

Teaching Associates' Programme (TAP)
The Teaching Associates’ Programme is a flexible, year-long course for researchers (PhD students and early-career postdoctoral staff) who teach. TAP will support you in extending your understanding of teaching and learning in your subject. The course is accredited by the Higher Education Academy and participants who complete the programme successfully will be eligible for accreditation as ‘Associates’ of the HE Academy.

This course is designed for Cambridge staff and takes an enquiry-based approach to exploring challenges in teaching and learning in higher education in Cambridge and beyond, as identified by its participants. Participants normally have at least one to three years’ experience of teaching in higher education. The course assumes a significant amount of independent study, as well as active involvement in teaching and/or supporting learning during the course. The course is not normally open to PhD students.
The course is offered as a collaboration between the Cambridge Centre for Teaching and Learning and the University’s Institute of Continuing Education.
