Teaching & Learning


Initiatives and resources supporting the objectives of UCL's Education Strategy 2016-21


Provost's Teaching Awards

The Provost’s Teaching Awards recognise and reward UCL colleagues who are making outstanding contributions to the learning experience and success of our students.

The criteria and process for the awards have been rewritten from the ground up, to reflect better UCL's interest in excellent, sustainable and strategic work supporting student learning in our research-intensive environment. If you support student learning at UCL in any capacity, do please have a look at the guidance and consider applying for an award.

The awards are made in three categories:

  • Individual Teaching Award: prize of £3,000 (£1,500 for PGTAs with increased PGTA quota)
  • Award for Team Collaboration and Achievement in Teaching: prize of £6,000 per team before tax

Additionally, at the panel's discretion, a third category of Leadership in Education will be bestowed.

The guidance and application process is hosted on Moodle.

The deadline for applications (1 March 2017) has now passed. Winners and the date for the ceremony will be announced shortly.

Please also book a ticket for the award ceremony: this year, to reflect the fact that the awards are presented alongside the UCLU-organised Student Choice Teaching Awards, we are holding them at Student Central. We are also planning a UCL ChangeMakers event to precede the awards -- we'll be in touch about that!

For any queries, or if you have trouble accessing the Moodle, please email pta@ucl.ac.uk.
