Below you can find information on the longer-term programmes available for you to develop your teaching practice further.

 

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 Postgraduate Certificate is open to Cambridge staff who teach / support the learning of Cambridge students. Current and recent participants span a range of disciplines and professional services, and include senior academic staff as well as those at earlier stages in their careers, librarians, educational technologists. This enables us to draw on diverse perspectives and experiences, as well as educational research, to develop informed approaches to engaging with educational challenges and enhancing teaching, learning and assessment.
