The TEF

Join the TEF panel

We're setting up a new panel to carry out assessments for the proposed Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF). 

You'll be reviewing evidence submitted by universities and colleges about the quality of their teaching and how they ensure excellent outcomes for their students, and making decisions about the TEF rating they should receive.

Paid: Fees are £6,000 for the first part of the process, and £4,000 for the second part of the process (minus tax and national insurance). Expenses will also be paid.

Time commitment: Between 30 and 50 days from late 2022 to autumn 2023.

Deadline: 1700 on Wednesday 10 August 2022.
