Collaborative Award for Teaching Excellence (CATE)

The Collaborative Award for Teaching Excellence (CATE) recognises and rewards collaborative work that has had a demonstrable impact on teaching and learning.

In 2020 the Queen Mary Legal Advice Centre was awarded a CATE, and you can find out more about their work on the AdvanceHE website.

More information is available from the AdvanceHE CATE homepage.

Nomination process

Each academic year, QMUL can nominate up to three colleagues to be considered for National Teaching Fellowship Scheme (NTFS) awards and one team for a CATE.

Staff at any stage of their careers who clearly demonstrate excellence in teaching and/or supporting students’ learning experience can be nominated, including part-time staff or staff on non-permanent contracts. Applications are welcomed from colleagues across the full range of roles that support the student learning experience.

Applications will be sought from previous winners of the Queen Mary Education Excellence Awards and President and Principal’s Prizes.

Applicants will be supported in preparing their application. If you would like more information or to discuss an application, please contact Alison Pettigrew.
