About the TEA

The Teaching Excellence Alliance is a collaborative venture to promote, define and showcase excellent teaching and learning in Alliance Universities.

Through working together, sharing experience and ideas, we aim to ensure that teaching and learning in Alliance Institutions meets the needs of businesses, modern society, and most importantly of our students.

The Teaching Excellence Alliance recognises that sustained student success in professional and technical education is achieved through the expertise and commitment of individual teaching staff, innovative course design, and institutional-level interventions.

Our networks and programme of events are therefore targeted to provide support in each of these areas.
