Graduate Teaching Assistants

3 x Graduate Teaching Assistantships/PhD Studentships (Ref: GT033-0714)

The Faculty of Education is one of the largest providers of initial teacher education in England as well as education related undergraduate programmes and an extensive range of continuing professional development programmes.

Research in the Faculty of Education is thriving. We have developed strong research partnerships with schools and have strengths in qualitative, quantitative and mixed methods approaches. Our quantitative programmes of research have addressed the learning and achievement of students at all stages of learning with a particular focus on learner motivation, engagement and emotions, and how these interact with the classroom environment.

There are two Research Centres which exist to foster high-quality research, to provide direction for research activity and to encourage collegial collaboration. Successful applicants will work within one of these centres:

 The Centre for Literacy and Numeracy (CLNR)

The Centre for Literacy and Numeracy Research conducts theoretical and applied research in schools and colleges into factors that influence literacy and numeracy acquisition and achievement. The Centre aims to make evidence-based insights available to education providers.

The Research Centre for Schools, Colleges and Teacher Education (SCaTE)

SCaTE encourages the generation of high-quality research, robustly theorized, that benefits teachers and students, including Early Years children. This aim includes,

  • investigating questions around schools (including Early Years), colleges and teacher education,  that are relevant to practitioners and are situated in problems of public interest
  • framing these questions in a strong theoretical foundation and an existing literature base
  • designing and implementing rigorous enquiry, with due attention to ethical implications
  • communicating findings clearly and accurately, to academic and practitioner audiences

The Centres are intended to generate research that achieves standards of excellence and informs teaching in the Faculty. They are responsible for:

  • Stimulating new research projects and planning for impact from these projects
  • Applying for research funding
  • Monitoring research
  • Providing mentoring for members
  • Publicising research (e.g. through websites)
  • Disseminating research (e.g. through conferences)
  • Maximising the impact of completed research
  • Organising research events, including regular meetings for members
