Universities and science minister outlines plans for a Teaching Excellence Framework.

Universities minister Jo Johnson will call today for a “renewed focus on teaching” in universities to improve perceptions of value for money and deliver employment skills. This will be achieved through developing a Teaching Excellence Framework, he will say.

In his second speech in his new role, Johnson will tell an audience of vice-chancellors at Universities UK that he will implement three manifesto pledges.
