Graduate School Support and Workshops
The Graduate School offers three training courses for GTAs, all of which count towards the College's professional skills minimum attendance requirement. These are:
- Teaching 1: An Introduction to Teaching Methods in Higher Education
- Teaching 2: Assessment and feedback in practice
- Teaching 3: Practical Guidance for your Application to Associate Fellowship of the HEA
Departments or Faculties can also seek accreditation from the Graduate School for their GTA training programmes which will allow students to receive credit towards their professional skills attendance requirement, will assure students that the training they receive is comparable to that offered by the Graduate School and will enable the course to be listed on their transcript. Departments wishing to explore this development opportunity should contact the Graduate School’s Head of Postgraduate Professional Development, Dr Janet De Wilde (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Further, should the results of GTA evaluations indicate that GTAs need further support and training, the Graduate School is able to work with departments to develop and deliver additional bespoke training to GTAs. Should departments wish to make use of this, they should contact the Graduate School’s Head of Postgraduate Professional Development, as above.
