Our Academic Community

The more we all develop as academic professionals, the more our students can fulfil their true potential. That’s why our Learning and Teaching Development team provides expert support to keep driving our growing reputation for academic excellence.

It’s all about fostering a culture of exceptional learning, teaching and assessment. So everything the team does is informed by our Learning, Teaching and Assessment Strategy

The team works with Faculties and Departments across the University to identify what they need, while our CPD Framework ‘Recognising Academic Practice’ will help you develop your teaching and leadership qualifications through a Fellowship, Senior Fellowship or Principal Fellowship with the Higher Education Academy.

If you develop your learning and teaching expertise to develop an exceptional student experience, we’ll even recognise you in our very own Teaching Fellowship Awards.

We’ll also offer you plenty of development opportunities around pedagogic practice. Not to mention financial support with studies towards a PhD – in most cases 100% free.
