The UK College of Business and Computing was awarded a Provisional Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF) rating in the 2017 TEF framework results. The award recognises that UKCBC has met the TEF quality requirement for UK higher education, but sufficient data is not yet available for the full granting of a Gold, Silver or Bronze award. The TEF examines three areas in determining the rating – teaching quality, the learning environment and the educational and professional outcomes achieved by students.
The TEF is employed by prospective undergraduate students and advisors when evaluating where to study a higher education qualification. It gives students a clear idea of the quality of teaching by focusing on elements that directly affect undergraduate students as opposed to concentrating, as many universities do, on research output.
UKCBC Principal, June Dennis, remarked ‘The TEF measures what matters to students. It measures what goes on in the classroom, the resources available to students and the student experience alongside their employability in the future. Students invest a lot in their education, and this metric helps them to determine their best options. UKCBC is pleased to have been awarded this Provisional TEF rating.’
