Fulfilling our potential: teaching excellence, social mobility and student choice

Read the CIPD's submission to the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills

The Department for Business, Innovation and Skills opened a consultation on 6 November 2016 on proposals to change the higher education landscape.

Views were sought on proposals to:

  • Introduce a Teaching Excellence Framework that will deliver better value for money for students, employers and taxpayers
  • Increase access and success in higher education participation for those from disadvantaged and under-represented groups
  • Create a new single gateway for entry and create a common system for all providers
  • Establish a new Office for Students to promote the student interest and ensure value for money, and to reduce the regulatory burden of the sector

The consultation also considers the implications of the proposals on the research landscape.
