Centres of Excellence in Teaching and Learning (CETLs)

Two students at computersThe Centres for Excellence in Teaching and Learning (CETL) initiative was HEFCE's largest ever single funding initiative in teaching and learning. The period of CETL activity has now finished and outputs have been embedded across the University.

The CETL initiative had two main aims: to reward excellent teaching practice, and to further invest in that practice so that CETLs funding delivered substantial benefits to students, teachers and institutions. Funding was provided for 74 CETLs, representing an investment of over £315 million over five years from 2005-2010. The University was successful in hosting two CETLs (CETL-AURS and CCMS) and was a collaborative partner in a further two, LearnHigher and piCETL. Further details of these CETLs are detailed in this section.
