We support postgraduate research students in developing their teaching in the following ways:

  • CREATE HEA Fellowship Schemewhich focuses on reflecting on your current teaching and leads to Associate Fellowship of the HEA. Expect to plan at least 15 hours engagement/writing your reflective narrative for an Associate Fellow claim. Suitable for PGRs with some teaching and/or learning support responsibilities. We recommend this route to Associate Fellowship for busy PGRs. 
  • Unit 1 of the Postgraduate Certificate in Academic Practice. A 30 credit level 7 unit, which focuses on reflecting on and developing your teaching, and leads to Associate Fellowship of the HEA. Suitable for PGRs with at least 20 hours of teaching and/or supporting learning within the same year. Expect to plan at least 30 hours engaging with formal learning and then further time in order to: develop your teaching practice (on the job); and to engage with independent study and your assessment. Apply here for the 2021/22 start
