Teaching Excellence Framework - Participation Figures Revealed

30 Jan 2017

Figures released by the the Higher Education Funding Council For England (HEFCE) on Friday 27 January have revealed that a total of 299 universities, colleges and alternative providers of higher education have chosen to participate in Year Two of the Teaching Excellence Framework (including the London School of Business and Management).

The framework will assess higher education institutions against criteria including drop-out rates and progression to highly skilled employment. It is part of the government’s plans for raising standards in higher education and aims to give students more information so that they can make the most informed decisions when deciding which university to attend.

Universities Minister Jo Johnson said:

'I am delighted that so many providers have decided to participate. The Teaching Excellence Framework will drive up the standard of teaching and give students clear, understandable information about where they are likely to receive the best teaching and outcomes.'


'Such strong participation demonstrates that the sector has bought into the concept of the TEF and I look forward to seeing the results of the assessments in May.'

Participating providers will be assessed by an independent, expert group of academics, students and employers, and will receive their ratings in May 2017.
