Teaching and Scholarship


The University of Cambridge is committed to providing a supportive environment to enable individuals to take ownership of their development and build a successful career at Cambridge.  The University’s success depends on the diversity of its staff and students. The University aims to be a leader in fostering equality and inclusion and nurturing a sense of belonging for all within our community. 

The purpose of the Academic Career Pathways scheme for Teaching & Scholarship staff (ACP T&S) is to recognise and reward outstanding contributions and celebrate academic achievement through promotion and/or pay progression.  

Assessment is based on contributions in: Teaching & Scholarship and in Service to the University and to the academic community more broadly. 

All applicants for promotion are expected to contribute to the creation of a positive working environment.  

All those who are involved in the ACP T&S scheme, either as an applicant, Head of Institution, Committee Member, Chair or Secretary, or in another supporting role, are expected to read and be familiar with this guidance.
