We will be running an applicant support event on campus on Thursday 9 March – sign up now.

Application deadline: 27 April 2023

York Academic and Professional Development (YPAD) Scheme

GTAs with more teaching experience who do not wish to complete a taught course might instead be interested in applying for professional recognition only, usually as an AFHEA, through this mentored scheme. Please see the YPAD web pages for details for the next cohort entry (to run between March- December 2023)

If you’re not sure which to apply for, there is an answer to a Frequently Asked Question in the YLTA application resource to help you decide whether engaging with YPAD or YLTA best would suit your particular circumstances as a GTA.

Application deadline: 17 February 2023
