Towards the end of last year, the Government set out plans for the Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF) in the green paper.
In the first year, 2017/18, higher education institutions who have met or exceeded Quality Assurance Agency (QAA) expectations in their last review will be granted a level-one award, with the option to apply for higher-level awards from year two onwards.
Assessment will involve a review of metrics and wider evidenceby a panel. Depending on the level awarded, institutions will be able to increase their fees above the cap at differentiated rates but not exceeding a real terms increase. The objectives are threefold: to recognise, and promote, teaching excellence and to inform choice.
