First Steps to Supporting  Learning and Teaching in Higher Education Award (FST)

FST is an Advance HE accredited course that is taught and assessed by the Centre for Higher Education Research & Practice (CHERP). FST provides an opportunity for post-graduate teaching assistants (PGTA), part-time tutors and other staff with restricted L&T roles, to develop their understanding of and practice in effective learning, teaching, and assessment.  It is offered as a stand-alone course and will be of particular benefit to those carrying out tutoring and demonstrating.
