The Government is introducing a Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF) which aims to recognise and reward excellent learning and teaching. It has published a technical consultation on year 2 of the TEF and has asked the Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE) to implement the year 2 exercise during 2016-17.

Appointments for all roles will be made by August 2016.
