Arena One: Teaching Associate Programme (TAP) Registration

Teaching Associate Programme 2020/21
Places on the Teaching Associate Programme are limited and there will be a requirement of teaching experience concurrent with the programme. Places will be allocated first come, first served, with priority given to postgraduates with more substantial teaching responsibilities. 

Please note that the Teaching Associate Programme requires a substantial time commitment: we expect participants to attend at least four sessions of their group and to engage with materials and activities between sessions. Please discuss with your supervisor before applying, and if you do not think you can commit to this, please think carefully about registering as this is a highly popular course!

Attendance at a Gateway (or departmental equivalent) is required to progress onto TAP. If you have not registered for a Gateway workshop, please do so here:

Prior training or a departmental equivalent might be considered a substitute for attendance at a Gateway workshop: please e-mail to discuss this, giving details of the training you have attended/will attend.

Arena One: TAP is for current PhD students only.
