Academic Standards, Quality Assurance and Enhancement

Teaching Excellence Framework

Prerequisite: None.

Target audience: Any member of staff.

Session duration is 1 x 2 hours.

The White Paper: Success as a Knowledge Economy: Teaching Excellence, Social Mobility and Student Choice (May 2016) reiterates the Governments manifesto commitment to introduce a Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF). The TEF is intended to recognise and reward high quality teaching, to provide clear information to students about where the best provision can be found and should encourage providers to improve teaching quality to reduce variability. It is also intended to help drive UK productivity by ensuring a better match of graduate skills with the needs of employers and the economy.

TEF core metrics include:
(a) Student views on "The teaching on my course", "Assessment and Feedback", and "Academic Support" (drawn from the NSS);
(b) Non-continuation rates (drawn from HESA and the Individualised Learner Record (ILR));
(c) Rates of employment of further study, six months after graduation (drawn from the DLHE).

Subject discipline focused metrics also feature as TEF matures..
