Support Learning and Teaching Pathway

If you want to take an extended programme, you could consider the Supporting Learning and Teaching Pathway.

SLTP has been designed to meet the needs of the significant number of College staff whose job involves supporting learners but who are not part of the full-time academic staff. The pathway is designed to increase participants' knowledge of learning and teaching issues relevant to their roles at Imperial.

SLTP is one of Imperial College’s Foundations in Teaching pathways and is accredited as part of the Imperial STAR Framework. Participants who complete this programme can apply to become an Associate Fellow (at Advance HE). All work that participants undertake on SLTP is designed to contribute to their application.

If you are doing a significant amount of teaching, you could also consider the Postgraduate Certificate in University Learning and Teaching programme.

The STAR Framework not only applies to academic staff, but also to the various other clinical teachers, support staff and graduate teaching assistants who are vital in teaching and supporting our students.
