Central Bedfordshire College achieves Silver Teaching Excellence and Student Outcomes Framework (TEF) status!

We are pleased to announce that Central Bedfordshire College has been awarded Silver Teaching Excellence and Student Outcomes Framework (TEF) status by the Office for Students. This confirms that the College delivers high quality teaching, learning and outcomes for its students that consistently exceed rigorous national quality requirements for UK Higher Education.

Silver TEF status has been awarded by an independent panel of students, academics and other experts at the Office for Students. Feedback from this panel has noted that full-time student satisfaction with academic support is exceptionally high and that small classes with personalised provision ensure high levels of learner engagement.

It was acknowledged in the feedback that course design and assessment practices are influenced by industry and provide relevant and challenging learning opportunities for learners. A very clear focus on vocational learning signalling the acquisition of knowledge, skills and understanding that are highly valued by employers.

We are very proud to have gained this recognition for our higher education courses; if you would like to find out more about higher education courses at CBC please click here.
