Careers in learning and teaching


Teaching is at the core of what we do, and passionate teachers are our lifeblood. To continue to be successful in our mission to provide an outstanding student experience, we need to ensure we also provide an outstanding staff experience. We value our teachers and nurture their careers in learning and teaching.

Creating learning and teaching career pathways

La Trobe holds an institutional partnership with the UK’s Advance Higher Education (AHE).

AHE champions excellence in teaching and learning support through its internationally-endorsed framework.

Through our La Trobe Academy, we offer a range of AHE-accredited professional learning pathways that lead to professional recognition (HEA fellowships) for staff. The globally recognised and transportable HEA Fellowships are open to academic and professional staff who teach or provide learning support.

For academic staff wanting to focus solely on their teaching career, teaching focussed academic positions provide a position with no research output expectation. These roles are not limited to the classroom and can contribute to teaching excellence and the student experience through learning and teaching leadership and curriculum development.

Our Academic Promotions process ensures there are clear recognition and reward pathways for teaching focussed staff.

Academic staff hub

Whether you’re already one of La Trobe’s own, or thinking of joining us, we want to ensure career development and opportunities are readily accessible; including support, professional development and career pathways.

Our academic staff hub site provides teaching, research and public scholarship opportunities and support for academic staff.
