Participants at an Emerging Research Leaders Development Programme event seen from behind the panel members

Through the workshops, programmes and events that it runs, CCTL encourages Cambridge educators to share their best ideas and learn from each other. We offer a portfolio of workshops on different aspects of teaching and academic service, as well as accredited educational development programmes at a range of levels for those who teach Cambridge students.

Programmes and Accreditation

At CCTL we offer two courses for those looking to develop their teaching further, in addition to guidance on receiving accreditation for your teaching. The Teaching Associates' Programme is for early-career researchers looking to extend their understanding of teaching and learning. The Postgraduate Certificate in Teaching & Learning in Higher Education is for Cambridge staff spanning a range of disciplines and professional services and takes an enquiry-based approach to exploring challenges in teaching and learning.


Lecturing & Voice

A range of workshops exploring the practical elements of lecturing performance and voice - connecting with your audience, overcoming nerves, projection, vocal strain, range and more - as well as opportunities for one-to-one coaching on these topics tailored to your requirements.


Supervising Undergradates

A complete introduction to supervising undergraduates at Cambridge. In completing the course you will understand the purpose of supervisions, know how to deal with common scenarios and provide effective feedback, and feel confident of the practicalities of supervising.


Supervising Postgraduates

Opportunities to develop your understanding of best practice in relation to postgraduate supervision, whether through a practical workshop focused on case studies and discussion or through a comprehensive online resource which pulls together University policy and advice curated from over one hundred fellow supervisors.


Teaching and Working with Disabled Students

Provided by the Disability Resource Centre, a range of workshops on teaching and working with disabled students, including those with mental health conditions, specific learning difficulties and autism spectrum conditions. The sessions cover general principles of inclusive practice, how to effectively teach students with ADHD or specific learning difficulties, how to support students in distress, and more.


College Role Training

A suite of workshops providing training for those with specific College-based roles: new Tutors, new Directors of Studies, and all involved in the admissions selection process.
