Conservatoire for Dance and Drama receives Gold Award for Teaching Excellence
22nd June 2017
The outcomes of the Year Two Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF) have been announced by HEFCE today, and we are delighted that the Conservatoire for Dance and Drama has received a Gold award. The Conservatoire is one of 59 institutions to be awarded Gold out of the 295 providers who entered the TEF.
The TEF was introduced by the Government to build evidence about the performance of the UK’s world-class higher education sector and the awards were decided by an independent panel of experts including academics, students and employer representatives. The TEF measures excellence in three areas: teaching quality, the learning environment and the educational and professional outcomes achieved by students.
The award follows the outcome of the HEFCE review of specialist institutions in 2016, which confirmed the Conservatoire – comprising Rambert School, Bristol Old Vic Theatre School, Central School of Ballet, LAMDA, London Contemporary Dance School, National Centre for Circus Arts, Northern School of Contemporary Dance and RADA – as a provider of world-leading teaching.
