Excellence in teaching and learning, and the student experience

We are proud of our longstanding and important contribution to excellence in teaching and learning here at Newcastle, training high calibre Speech and Language Therapists (SLT) and the SLT leaders of the future.

We do this in partnership with our students, with many avenues for dialogue, and in partnership with Speech and Language Therapists and managers. This ensures that our curricula and delivery of teaching and learning is reviewed and shaped by views of students, SLTs and, where possible, service users. 

There are many areas of excellence and of innovation. Some of which have been resulted in our staff being nominated and recognised by students  through the Newcastle Teaching Excellence Awards (TEAs).
