Teaching for Postgraduates at Aberystwyth University (TPAU)

This programme, aimed at Postgraduate Research Students, started in 2016. The programme will develop the teaching skills of postgraduate students who are already teaching in their departments.  This will give you a grounding in the good practice of teaching and expand your knowledge and expertise in a range of core teaching areas. The programme is accredited through the Higher Education Academy (HEA) at Associate Fellowship level (equivalent to module 1 of the Postgraduate Certificate in Teaching in Higher Education - PGCTHE)  Those who complete the programme will become an Associate Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (AFHEA).
