The Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF)


​The University responds to the Teaching Excellence Framework:

The White Paper 'Success as a Knowledge Economy: Teaching Excellence, SocialMobility and Student Choice', published in May 2016, confirmed the UK Government's intention to introduce the Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF). 

TEF Year One took place in 2015-16 and was based on the University's standing with the Quality Assurance Agency.  Cardiff Met 'passed' TEF Year One on the basis of its successful QAA Institutional review in 2014.

The Vice-Chancellor of Cardiff Met University, Professor Cara Aitchison, in conjunction with the Chair of the Governing Body recently confirmed Cardiff Met's intention to participate in TEF Year Two which looks to assess an institution's Teaching Quality, Learning Environment, and Student Outcomes and Learning Gain.  Judgements will be made against six core metrics and a 15-page institutional submission.  The University's TEF submission was successfully uploaded by the deadline of 26th January 2017. 

The TEF is intended to better inform students' choices about what and where to study, to raise esteem for teaching, to recognise and reward excellent teaching and better meet the needs of employees, business, industry and the professions.  

The result will be known in May 2017.
