I am pleased to announce today that the Secretary of State for Education has appointed Dame Shirley Pearce DBE to report on the operation of the Teaching Excellence and Student Outcomes Framework (TEF) in line with the process set out in section 26 of the Higher Education and Research Act 2017.

The Review will commence in December this year and we expect the reviewer to report in summer 2019.

Dame Shirley has a distinguished track record in higher education and has made an outstanding contribution to a number of other areas of public life.

This makes her an excellent choice to lead this Review and clearly shows that she will command the confidence of HE providers.

Her detailed biography is attached, and I will deposit a copy in the House Libraries.

Further details and guidance will be published on .gov.uk.
