HE green paper

UCU looks at the government's 2015 higher education green paper.

UCU believes that the effectiveness and success of a quality assessment regime, including the Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF), will depend heavily on the contributions of academic and academic-related staff. So far, their perspectives have been largely ignored in current debates and we are concerned about the 'absence of the academic' from recent higher education policy.
