As set out in our White Paper, “Success as a Knowledge Economy: Teaching Excellence, Social Mobility and Student Choice” we plan to implement the Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF) in stages.
- In Year One all providers with satisfactory quality assessments will automatically achieve a rating of ‘Meets Expectations’.
- Year Two will be a trial year for the full assessment process at provider level. Year Three in will be the first full year of assessments at provider level, and we will also carry out a number of pilots at disciplinary level.
- Year Four will be the first year of disciplinary level assessments and the first year in which post-graduate taught provision may be included.
Further detail on the timeline for Year Two is set out in the TEF Technical Consultation.
