tef silver logo resized largeNorthampton College has been given a ‘Silver’ award for the quality of its Higher Education teaching, putting it above many leading universities in the rankings. The Teaching Excellence Framework was introduced to measure Higher Education providers in terms of quality of experience for students. It uses a series of metrics including success rates, student satisfaction, progression to employment and resources. Providers are given a rating of either Gold, Silver or Bronze.

Northampton College achieved a silver award and was praised for showing ‘strategic intent to deliver excellent employability outcomes, embedding employability skills development and employer involvement in delivery’.

The report added that Northampton College had ‘a high standard of delivery using industry-standard equipment to support learning’ and was praised for ‘the development of e-learning across the curriculum which places major emphasis on creating an environment in which information and learning technology and digital literacy are developed in creative and innovative ways’.

Northampton College earned praise for ‘developing a culture which supports continuing professional development and the upskilling of staff engaged in higher education delivery’ while inspectors were impressed with the opportunities for students to feed back about the quality of provision covering every part of the higher education programme.

The award stands for three years.
