Teaching Excellence and Student Outcomes Framework: Subject-level

Closed 21 May 2018

Opened 12 Mar 2018

Overview

We're seeking your views on the proposed design of the subject-level Teaching Excellence and Student Outcomes Framework (TEF).

Why we are consulting

The Teaching Excellence and Student Outcomes Framework (TEF) aims to recognise and reward excellence in teaching, learning and student outcomes in higher education providers in the UK. The current framework assesses undergraduate provision at a ‘provider-level’.

We set out our intention to undertake TEF assessments at a disciplinary (subject) level in the white paper ‘Success as a knowledge economy’ (May 2016). The purpose, therefore, of this consultation is not to determine whether to proceed to subject-level assessment, but how to do so in the best and most proportionate way.

This consultation is an opportunity for all stakeholders, including students, providers, employers and sector bodies to comment on the proposed design of subject-level TEF. Findings from the consultation will ensure the design of subject-level TEF is informed by a thorough evidence base.

We will hold consultation events in May 2018. If you would like to attend one of these events, please see the details below and register for an event using the relevant related link.
