sgtcNEW Sheffield Graduate Training Contract (SGTC) - 1 September 2013

As part of its commitment to enhancing support for Graduate Teaching Assistants (GTAs), and following UEB endorsement, the University has developed a bespoke contract of employment – the Sheffield Graduate Training Contract (SGTC) - to ensure that GTAs are employed and supported effectively and consistently across the University. This contract is underpinned by the recognition that GTAs’ important contribution to the student learning experience should be reflected in the way in which they are engaged, supported, informed and encouraged to develop.

The Sheffield Graduate Training Contract is a variable hours contract for the engagement of postgraduate students as GTAs where they carry out grade 6 duties, indicatively with a minimum commitment of 10 hours per semester.
