Sid Hayes- Key Note Observations on The Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF) from BBS L&T Conference 16

The government has stated that the TEF will aim to:

  • ensure all students receive an excellent teaching experience that encourages original thinking, drives up engagement and prepares them for the world of work
  • build a culture where teaching has equal status with research, with great teachers enjoying the same professional recognition and opportunities for career and pay progression as great researchers
  • provide students with the information they need to judge teaching quality
  • recognise institutions that do the most to welcome students from a range of backgrounds and support their retention and progression
  • include a clear set of outcome-focused criteria and metrics

The metrics come from the retention data, National Student Survey (NSS) outcomes  and employability data plus a University Statement.
