Employing graduate students in Higher Education
Institutions (HEIs) as Graduate Teaching Assistants
(GTAs) is increasingly popular across different
institutions in the United Kingdom. GTAs support
students’ learning as well as assisting academics
in preparing sessions and, at times, with research.
The GTA scheme is seen as a developmental role
for graduate students who wish to pursue a career
in the education sector; it is the first step on the
ladder to becoming an academic. This paper
provides an insight into the GTA role, outlines
the challenges GTAs face and the rewards they
receive while engaging with students, academics
and research in a UK-based university
