The TLA is open to both schools/colleges and individuals. There is no fee to join.

Whether joining through your school/college or as an individual, all members will be able to gain access to a range of resources and support for their professional development. The categories of membership have been devised to enable individuals and schools/colleges to join the TLA at the most appropriate membership level for their particular needs and aspirations. For example: 

  • A teacher in a small rural primary school may want to become associated initially, to gain access to a range of online resources, to support their professional development; 
  • A bursar in a large secondary school may want to engage in a new initiative and choose to undertake a recognition project to gain TLA recognition for the work undertaken and to become an Associate Member of the TLA; 
  • A teaching assistant who has successfully undertaken a Foundation degree, and is interested in pursuing a particular project, could undertake a Stage 2 recognition project and be awarded Associate Membership of the teaching and Learning Academy (AMTLA);
  • Schools and education setting will also be awarded the Teaching and Learning Academy status in recognition of their research status if two or more members of staff completed a successful TLA recognition project (AMTLA) or Master's level credits (MTLA);
  • A teacher may be keen to investigate a whole school initiative and on the successful completion of an assessed project gain 20 level 7 (Masters degree) credits, which could be used towards a Masters degree. 

The award of MTLA can be gained by students on successful completion of a master's module. The Canterbury Christ Church University's Master programmes with the additional award of MTLA attached is accumulative. On successful completion of 120 level 7 credits with MTLA the award of Fellowship of the Teaching and Learning Academy will be conferred.
