Teaching and Supporting Learning in Higher Education (TSLHE)

TSLHE has been developed particularly for staff who have specific teaching responsibilities, such as researchers or staff who support student learning and teaching development.

Delivered in conjunction with the PGCAP programme, the module involves the integration of learning in multi-disciplinary and interactive workshops with reflection upon the experience of work-based practice. Academic supervisory support is provided to all participants throughout.

TSLHE is intended to be completed part-time over one year. In addition to the award of Masters-level credit, TSLHE is accredited by the Higher Education Academy. This means individuals who successfully complete the programme will secure professional recognition as an Associate Fellow of the HEA.

Application Process

You will need to submit an application using the form below. Allocation is based upon availability of places, reason for applying and whether the range and scope of your teaching / student support related activity will realistically enable you to complete the programme. Relevant areas of activity for teaching and supporting learning are identified on the application form.

Application forms can be submitted anytime, but a first deadline to start TSLHE in 2017/18 is set for Friday 20 July 2018. Applications will be considered at this point and places allocated as appropriate. If places remain available after this, they will be allocated on a first come first served basis as eligible application forms come in.
