Various sources of support are reviewed, including bothgeneric and specific mechanisms provided by either the Higher Education Academy (HEA) or the British Psy-chological Society (BPS). The training considered ranges from that provided for all new lecturers in the UK bytheir institutions, through to bespoke seminars and workshops delivered by the HEA and the BPS. Resourcesinclude written guidance, websites and sources of funding to support the development of teaching and lear-ning.
