Centre for Excellence in Teaching and Learning (CETL)

In 2005, the Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE) awarded Birmingham City University a Centre for Excellence in Teaching and Learning (CETL). The award focused on an exploration of how the student experience could be improved through the development of learning partnerships between universities and the health and social care sector.

In the years that followed, the CETL evolved and became more embedded in the University through the Centre for Learning Partnerships (CLP). The CLP now seeks to develop wider relationships with colleges, universities and employers that can enrich student experiences at Birmingham City University. .

“We seek and develop academic partnerships with those organisations that can enrich the student learning experience at this University. The organisations may be local or global, but they have to persuade us that, through collaboration, they can help us develop the vibrant learning community to which we aspire.”
Professor Stuart Brand
Director of Learning Experience and CETL Director
