Cambridge Centre for Teaching and Learning


Applications are now open for the Teaching Associates' Programme running over the 2020-21 academic year.

This programme is designed for early-career academics and researchers (inluding postdoctoral researchers, early-career college lecturers, and PhD students) who teach Cambridge students, and will support you in extending your understanding of teaching and learning in your subject and level.

The programme is accredited by the Higher Education Academy and completion will result in accreditation at Descriptor 1 (Associate Fellow).

The deadline for applications is Monday 7 September, with outcomes normally confirmed by Friday 18 September. More information on the outcomes and requirements expected for the course, as well as how to apply, are available on our TAP pages.

Please note: we are currently designing next year's programme to be delivered remotely. It is very difficult at present to anticipate how things will be over the course of the next academic year. If it becomes possible and desirable for some elements of the programme to take place in person, we will make that decision at the appropriate time.
