Cambridge Centre for Teaching and Learning

The Centre for Teaching & Learning currently offers two teaching development programmes, as well as an application scheme for accreditation by Advance HE.

The Advancing Educational Practice Programme is a nine-month course, completion of which will earn you accreditation as a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy. It will require approximately 10 days of your time devoted to preparing for and attending the six face-to-face sessions, and engaging with the assignments and development exercises.

It is aimed primarily at colleagues early in their career with substantive teaching or learning support responsibilities, such as early-career lecturers or researchers, College Teaching Officers and academic-related or support staff with roles involving substantial teaching or learning support.

The Postgraduate Certificate of Teaching & Learning in Higher Education is a twelve-month Master's-level course equivalent to 60 credits at FHEQ Level 7. It will require between 30 and 35 days of your time devoted to preparing for and attending the five face-to-face sessions, and engaging with the assignments and developmental exercises.

It is aimed at colleagues with a minimum of three years' experience of teaching or supporting learning in higher education. Participants span the full range of disciplines and include University and College academics, professional staff supporting learning, and postdoctoral researchers.

The Cambridge Teaching & Learning Recognition Scheme is a route for you to apply for accreditation as a Fellow or Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy on the basis of your experience. It is not a taught developmental course, but you are strongly encouraged to attend two face-to-face sessions designed to support you in writing your application.

Those with less substantive teaching roles, such as PhD students supervising undergraduates, might like to look out for our upcoming seminar series that will explore ways to enhance your teaching.
