Teaching Excellence

Coventry University has put student experience, outcomes and employability at the centre of what we do.  We earned a gold rating in the Teaching Excellence Framework (2017) through a whole institutional focus on teaching excellence and student experience.  

We continue to build on our success and are investing in continuous professional development for staff, increasing the numbers of academic teaching staff and diversifying our learning technology. We have developed a new Student Engagement Centre as well to provide more tailored support for our learners.

Our aim is to ensure all our current and future students are supported by passionate staff to take responsibility for their own learning and development to grow into confident, skilled and thoughtful people who are truly transformational and inspirational in the lives that they lead after studying with us.  We support and encourage a wide range of extra-curricular opportunities to help students with their personal development and encourage their understanding of social responsibility, benefitting society as a whole. 

We are always looking for talented individuals who share our passion for teaching and supporting learning.  If you are driven to support students, passionate about research or motivated to share your love of teaching with colleagues, and would like to be part of an innovative university that is constantly evolving, then we want to hear from you.

Our Education Strategy emphasises our commitment to research inspired teaching.  The reciprocal relationship between research and teaching is imperative to maintain the university’s position in teaching excellence. Providing access to university research projects and close cooperation between research and course teams enables students and staff to benefit. Applied research strengthens the value of our offer and the transformative power of learning for our students.

Our work with employers and businesses helps us to embed employability into all our courses so that students have more skills to offer as they begin their professional careers.
