Support for PhD students who teach

The Queen Mary Academy offers the following support for gradaute teaching associates, teaching associates, demonstrators and PhD students who teach in a variety of roles:

Teach your first session

For those entirely new to teaching.  Teach your first session workshops are offered in September and January before teaching starts and will be run in school / institute groups.  For September 2020 these sessions will focus on online delivery and will be offered online.  More details will follow soon.

Continuous professional development workshops

Individual workshops on key aspects of teaching and learning such as assessment and feedback

Certificate in Learning and Teaching (CILT)


We are opening a GTA stream of CILT to enable GTAs to undertake the programme within a supportive peer group.  To be eligible for a place you will need to be teaching QMUL students for at least 10 hours of the academic year in which you undertake the course and have the support of your supervisor.
