If you are an academic staff member, the University provides you with a range of opportunities to develop your teaching skills and excellence:

Graduate Certificate in Tertiary Education

The Graduate Certificate in Tertiary Education (GCTE) offers a personalised, flexible, self-organised, self-directed and self-paced course for academic educators. The qualification works within a scaffolded and supported framework, and the course outcomes align with the requirements of an application to the Higher Education Academy (HEA) for a Level 2 Fellowship.

Higher Education Academy Fellowships

Certificate of Teaching

The University’s CoT is a short online course in tertiary teaching essentials which can act as an introduction for new teaching staff or a refresher for the more experienced.  This short, self-paced and flexible course will contribute to your professional development by enhancing your capabilities as an educator.
