Training and Professional Development (CPD)
At the University of Reading teaching excellence is integral to the student experience and we are constantly looking at ways to enhance and develop teaching & learning across the University.
The University regards the highest quality of teaching as a key component of the student experience, and is committed to ensuring that all staff at Reading involved in teaching and learning are appropriately supported. The Framework combines two strands: the Academic Practice Programme (APP) for staff relatively new to teaching and a non-taught CPD Route for experienced staff.
Academic Practice Programme
The Academic Practice Programme is a 40 credit Level 7 taught programme, accredited by the Higher Education Academy at Descriptor 1 and 2.
The FLAIR CPD scheme is an internal accreditation process which enables experienced staff to gain professional recognition for the work they do in teaching or supporting learning.
