This review considers the range of training and resources that are available to support excellence in the tea-ching of psychology in higher education in the UK. 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. It is concluded that whilst there are currently some excellent resources available to support psychologyteachers in higher education, recent changes to the HEA have created some uncertainty in the sector.
