New assessment highlights excellence of teaching and learning across UK universities and colleges

The results of the Teaching Excellence Framework provide a new picture of excellence in teaching and learning in UK higher education.

The results and the underlying evidence will help students who are thinking about applying to university or college for autumn 2018, and encourage teaching and learning excellence across the UK.

The Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF) was introduced by the Government to build evidence about the performance of the UK’s world-class higher education sector, complementing the existing Research Excellence Framework with an analysis of teaching and learning outcomes.

A total of 295 universities, colleges and alternative providers of higher education voluntarily took part in the TEF. Each provider was rated gold, silver or bronze, or received a provisional award where there was not enough data for a full assessment.

In the assessment, 59 providers were rated gold, 116 were rated silver and 56 were rated bronze.

Excluding those with provisional ratings, a gold award was achieved by 26 per cent of participants, silver by 50 per cent and bronze by 24 per cent.
