CREATE (Cultivating Research and Teaching Excellence) is the University of Bristol's continuing professional development scheme for academics. It provides academic staff an opportunity to enhance their practice within a world class research-intensive university and to gain national recognition for their commitment to developing their role.

The scheme contributes to the University’s commitment to research and educational excellence. The scheme, running since 2014, was redesigned and relaunched in 2021 and now consists of the Postgraduate Certificate in Academic Practice (PGCAP) and the CREATE HEA Fellowship Scheme.
