Review of TEF: terms of reference

Terms of reference for the independent review of the Teaching Excellence and Student Outcomes Framework (TEF).



The terms of reference sets out the objectives of the independent review and how it will work with other TEF developments.

The Secretary of State has appointed Dame Shirley Pearce to be the independent reviewer with administrative support from the Department for Education. She will also establish a small advisory group comprising relevant experts to provide advice and help inform her review.

The independent reviewer will seek views from stakeholders to inform her review. A consultation will launch soon and will provide a mechanism for stakeholders and users to provide feedback and suggest ideas to inform the review.

Until the consultation is launched, email all queries relating to the review to: TEF.IndependentReview@education.gov.uk.
