Opportunities to Gain Teaching Experience
It is one of the key features of graduate training in History at Warwick that we provide excellent opportunities for our research students to gain teaching experience on our undergraduate degrees.
Teaching requirements for the coming academic year are resolved before the end of the previous Summer Term, when the Department Academic Administrator will inform all PGR students and their supervisors of what teaching will be available. Students then apply, with the support of their Supervisor.
We predominantly select students in Years 2 and 3, but students in Year 4 are also often given teaching, depending on the progress of their research. Selection of those to be given teaching is at the discretion of the Head of Department, who will be guided by the advice of Supervisors. In normal circumstances it is our intention to give teaching experience to all students during the course of their research studies at Warwick.
Postgraduate research students who undertake teaching in the Department must complete the 'Preparing to Teach in Higher Education' course provided by the LDC prior to the start of the Autumn Term. Having completed all three sections of Preparing to Teach in Higher Education and receiving the certificate of completion you may consider progressing to the Academic Professional Pathway: PGR (APP PGR).Preparing to Teach in Higher Education
