We will analyse the policy landscape, discuss timelines, new developments, clarify the metrics and decode the process behind the new ratings.

Our line-up of expert speakers will elaborate on the key benefits of the TEF, outline best practice on how to prepare your submissions and how to enhance diversity and inclusion within institutions.

You will hear from The OFS who explore the implications of the Pearce review and give practical guidance on the development, timelines and implementation of the Future TEF. You will also explore the guidance around the subject-level element.

The University of Portsmouth will highlight student and staff perceptions of the NSS and explore new approaches to student satisfaction. You will also review how to ensure the TEF is meaningful for students, including the impact of Covid on student experience.
