The Business, Innovation and Skills Committee’s report on assessing quality in higher education calls for the government should consult carefully on next steps in the Teaching Excellence Framework.
Coverage of the report in Times Higher Education includes a comment from Chief Executive Maddalaine Ansell. She said:
“The BIS Committee is right to focus on the need for the TEF to deliver genuine improvements and preserve the strong reputation of UK higher education. To succeed it must build on – not undermine – the best practice, innovative teaching and research-informed learning which we see across the sector.
“Today’s report also reflects University Alliance’s call for the TEF to be delivered in stages to guard against unintended consequences. We hope ministers will pay heed to this message.”
