York Learning and Teaching Award (YLTA) 2021/22 Applications now open

We are now accepting applications to the York Learning and Teaching Award (YLTA) for 2021/22 entry.

YLTA is a taught-course designed to support York-based Graduate Teaching Assistants (GTAs) to reflect on and develop your practice. It is also intended to help you plan for future employment. For this reason, YLTA challenges participants to look beyond the constraints of your current role as a GTA in order to understand the full range of responsibilities and expectations for academics who teach and support student learning across the UK Higher Education sector.

The nine-month course integrates online self-study materials with campus based workshops, peer-support systems, and supervisory support by an experienced academic. 

In addition to the award of 20 Masters-level credits, YLTA is accredited by Advance HE to award Associate Fellow of the HEA (AFHEA) to those who successfully complete the course.

The closing date for applications is Thursday 6 May 2021. More details and a link to the application form are available on the GTA Community site on the VLE
