- Wednesday, June 19, 2019
The University of Roehampton has been recognised with a Silver in the Teaching Excellence and Student Outcomes Framework (TEF) for delivering high quality teaching, learning and outcomes for its students.
This further highlights our commitment to providing an excellent experience and education that enables our students to prepare themselves for a successful and fulfilling career in a rapidly changing world.
The University was commended by the review panel for the fact that most full-time Roehampton students achieve excellent outcomes. The University performed particularly well against the benchmark for rates of progression to highly skilled employment or further study. Other feedback included:
- support for students in gaining work experience and engagement with employers, resulting in high rates of progression to highly skilled employment and positive outcomes over longer career timelines
- effective programmes of staff development and an institutional culture of reward and recognition for teaching excellence
- the improvement in the attainment of black, Asian and minority ethnic students
- personalisation of timetables and specific support for under-represented student groups underpinning high levels of student engagement
Professor Jean-Noël Ezingeard, Vice-Chancellor, said "This is an excellent result for us and a real testament to the hard work and dedication of colleagues who teach and support our students. Roehampton is a university that prides itself in helping all students, regardless of their background, to develop the confidence, knowledge and adaptability they need for a successful graduate career and fulfilling life. We are delighted that the work colleagues undertake daily is now reflected, to a greater extent in the results of the TEF"
The TEF awards are made against six measures including how many students continue their course from one year to the next, graduate-level employment outcomes, and students' views about their experience gathered in the annual National Student Survey.
