University Alliance Chief Executive Maddalaine Ansell is featured in Times Higher Education’s coverage of the speech by Jo Johnson this week on value for money and universities.
Responding to the announcement that Longitudinal Educational Outcomes (LEO) data will be included in the Teaching Excellence Framework in future, Maddalaine said:
“LEO is an excellent tool for improving the quality and reliability of data on student employment outcomes, going far beyond what we can achieve with any survey. It also tells us something about what graduates can expect to earn, but we need to recognise self-employment isn’t covered in the data and there are many other, stronger, factors in play like regional variation in economic conditions when thinking about how to use it to measure university performance.”
