The Humanities Division and the Department for Continuing Education (OUDCE) invite applications from doctoral students in the Humanities, who have little or no prior teaching experience, for the opportunity to co-teach Continuing Education students alongside an experienced tutor. The scheme was offered for the first time in 2013-14 and this year we are able to offer places for to up to 20 students. 

The main purpose of the scheme is as a development opportunity for those who are seeking a well supported introduction to teaching. We are, however, also pleased to offer participants a fee of £35 per hour for the teaching that they undertake.

Full details about the scheme can be found in the guidance notes. An essential part of the scheme is the matching of potential participants to the open access courses that will be on offer during the academic year. To enable this, students should apply by 24 June 2019 by completing the application form. Applicants should explicitly state their area of expertise and also the parameters within which they are confident to teach.  

Any questions about the scheme should be addressed to Caroline Thurston, Humanities Training Officer (
