Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF) results announced
19th June 2019
David Hughes, responding to the TEF results said: "I'm delighted that the TEF has confirmed what we already knew - that colleges up and down the country are delivering high quality higher education which matches the best. The results, including 14 Gold awards, shows that HE students in colleges have great teaching, facilities and outcomes. "This is the first set of full results for the TEF and I am sure that colleges and HEFCE will have learned a lot from the experience. We will start now to see how far the TEF influences student choices and it is likely that more colleges will want to enter to be graded in the future. We will work closely with the TEF team to ensure that the metrics and the assessment work well for colleges which tend to have more part-time and older students who are working whilst learning."
