Engineering Council representative appointed to TEF subject-level panel

Published: 16/04/2018

Deborah SeddonExpert panel members have been appointed to carry out assessments for the Teaching Excellence and Student Outcomes Framework subject-level pilot project during spring 2018.

The Engineering Council is pleased to announce that Deborah Seddon, Policy and Standards Advisor, has been appointed to the Engineering and Technology panel.

Panel members were selected for their subject expertise, their standing in higher education, and evident commitment to teaching excellence and student outcomes. The composition of the panels also reflects the diverse types of higher education provider across the UK.

The subject-level pilots run alongside, but are otherwise distinct from, the provider-level TEF exercise currently under way. The pilot assessments will not interact with the Year Three TEF process in any way, and ratings identifying individual providers will not be published.

We welcome the opportunity this gives to the Engineering Council to contribute to the TEF's work in recognising and encouraging excellence in teaching and learning.

The TEF is carried out by the Office for Students (OfS) on behalf of the Department for Education. More information on the subject-level pilots is on the OfS website, as is more information on provider-level TEF.
