Teachers and advisers

We value the crucial role that teachers and advisers play in shaping our future generations. We're committed to supporting your professional development and providing you with opportunities to excel in your roles as career leaders, aspirational advisers, and heads of sixth form.

Through a range of initiatives and cross-faculty collaboration, we hope to empower you to make a positive impact in your institutions.

Your professional development

Working with teachers and advisers, we provide professional development opportunities to help you develop your career, and that of your school and college staffing community. Explore our postgraduate degrees online or request a postgraduate prospectus.

We also provide a range of short courses through our North East Workforce Skills programme to enhance the skills of your workforce. Our courses cover topics such as leadership, mental health, gender and diversity, and social media marketing. Funding is available via the European Union Social Fund (ESF).

Conversion courses

Thinking about a career change? If you hold an undergraduate degree, we may offer a postgraduate conversion course that will help you to make that change. Our conversion courses can also be completed part-time, allowing you to complete a degree while continuing with your employment.

Our highly successful annual Teachers and Advisers conference is tailored to you, bringing together experts, practitioners and educators to share industry updates and information.

To empower you in your roles, you'll be invited to attend carefully designed workshops, brought to you by our faculty academics and professional services teams. You'll have the chance to network with other teachers and advisers at the event, as well as our academics. Here, you can find out more about our future-proofed courses, industry-focused facilities, and the student opportunities available across the University.

Parents and supporters

Informing parents and supporters about Higher Education is just as important to us as talking to students. We're always happy to attend information sessions to help parents and carers support their children who are considering university.
