Leadership Lessons and top 5 takeaways from Festival of Education and more
The 22nd of June saw the release of the first Teaching Excellence Frameworks results. Like other examples of assessments and measurement devices before it, it has caused its own set of controversies. With this move however it now brings that world more clearly to the colleges and universities within the UK. As Bett has been out and about this year meeting with schools, colleges and universities we've been hearing and seeing that the education community, at least in the UK, is keen for a period of calm as many leaders struggle with the reality of tightened budgets, increased scrutiny and increased expectations around student outcomes. It's been great to hear everyone's perspectives and there's still time to contribute your opinion and view, either through a chat, or if you want to complete our survey?
This is our third newsletter and we're delighted to see so many of you reading and engaging with them. A couple of highlights from the previous ones that you may have missed!
