If you are new to supervising graduate students at Cambridge (who are studying both for one-year courses or PhDs) the Board of Graduate Studies strongly recommends you to take part in some form of professional development. In collaboration with BGS, the Cambridge Centre for Teaching and Learning offers training and support for newly-appointed supervisors of graduate students and for those new to the Cambridge system. The workshops, which run over lunchtime, are designed to consider reciprocal expectations and duties, as well as approaches to supervising, and to raise awareness of possible issues and where to go for support.

Do you get nervous when teaching or lecturing? Are you speaking with a clear voice and being heard? Do you get the results you want from your communications with others at work?

This individually focused and completely confidential one-to-one coaching session for Cambridge staff with teaching responsibilities will help you refine your teaching and presentation skills, assist you to speak more confidently, and develop new approaches to your communication in a wide range of professional situations. Constructive feedback will give you insight into your speaking style, how you come across to others, and how well your ideas are communicated. Coaching will focus on your individual requirements, ranging from practical points about elocution and vocal projection, to holding the attention of a room of students and structuring a compelling lecture or presentation.

Teaching Associates' Programme (TAP) new Unscheduled Not bookable

The Teaching Associates’ Programme runs each year. For information about what the course involves and how to apply, please visit If you still have questions, please contact the course director, Dr Meg Tait (

The Teaching Associate Programme (TAP) is a year-long programme which supports early career researchers who have some responsibility for teaching and learning. TAP is accredited by the Higher Education Academy (HEA), and, if you successfully complete all elements of the programme, you will become an Associate Fellow of the HEA. In order to be eligible for Associate Fellowship of the HEA, you will need to have a minimum of 40 hours’ experience of teaching and/or supporting learning.

Applications are open to Postdoctoral Researchers/Research Staff and PhD students in their 2nd year or above, from any subject area. Prior to applying for TAP we require you to have at least 20 hours of teaching and at least 20 more hours of confirmed teaching for the academic year to come. In this way, the programme enables you to reflect on your own current practice, to explore ideas and approaches for enhancing your teaching, and to think about your future development as a higher education professional. Only higher education (university-level) teaching experience can be considered.

The programme has a high level of flexibility and participants are expected to plan their TAP work to fit around other activities. However, there are several compulsory components which cannot be missed and those include: four seminars, teaching observations, tutorial and lecturing practical. Help and support is available throughout the year to enable students to get the best from the programme.

Tutoring: Support for New Appointees Wed 2 Oct 2019   09:00 Finished

Tutors provide general oversight of student welfare, in the widest sense, and form an essential part of College communities and the Colleges’ provision to students. This course will use a mixture of formal presentations, group work and plenary discussions to provide new or prospective Tutors with advice and support for their students, a greater understanding of responsibilities and where to find information. There will also be presentations from the Disability Resource Centre and the University Counselling Service relevant to College Tutoring.

Please note that the term ‘Tutor’ as used at Cambridge does not refer to a teaching role.
