We celebrate our gold award for teaching excellence

25 October 2018

Robert Voss CBE, Lord-Lieutenant of Hertfordshire, last night hosted a drinks reception to celebrate the University of Hertfordshire’s top gold ranking in the Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF) 2018, the Government’s assessment of teaching excellence in higher education.

The Lord-Lieutenant was joined by a number of other dignitaries including, Lord Salisbury, Chancellor of the University of Hertfordshire; Richard Beazley, Chairman of the University and Vice-Lord Lieutenant of Hertfordshire; the University’s Vice-Chancellor, Professor Quintin McKellar CBE; Councillor Barbara Fitzsimon, Mayor Welwyn Hatfield Council; Councillor William Wyatt-Lowe, Vice-Chairman of Hertfordshire County Council; Councillor John Bishop, Chairman, North Herts District Council; and Councillor Brenda Batten, Mayor, Hertsmere Borough Council.

TEF Gold

The gold award recognises the outstanding teaching at the University and marks an uplift on last year’s submission (TEF 2017), in which the University was ranked silver. The TEF judging panel highlighted the University’s commitment and success in work-based learning, entrepreneurship and enterprise.

The TEF is a national initiative, run by the government’s Office for Students, that recognises and rewards excellent teaching in higher education.
