Below you can find information on the longer-term programmes available for you to develop your teaching practice further, including the University's development programme for University lecturers with probationary appointments.

 

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.

 

Postgraduate Certificate in Teaching and Learning in Higher Education (PGCTLHE)

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.

 

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.

 

ECR Teach

This course is for postdoctoral early career researchers and offers a practical and ‘hands-on’ education in course design, teaching strategies and matters of assessment and evaluation in higher education. This five-month course is taught at Master’s level and successful completion of the course is recognised with a Certificate of Attendance of the University’s Institute of Continuing Education. The focus of the course is adult learners in a continuing education setting. However, the aims and content are broadly applicable to many forms of course design.

You must have at least six months left on your contract to be eligible for this programme. Find out more about this course.
