Teaching Quality Enhancement Committee

The Teaching Quality Enhancement Committee (TQEC) was established by the HEFCE, Universities UK (UUK) and the Standing Conference of Principals (SCOP) to review the arrangements for supporting the enhancement of quality in learning and teaching in higher education.

The TQEC submitted its final report in January 2003. The report proposes the creation of a single, central body to support the enhancement of learning and teaching in higher education. The new body, provisionally called the Academy for the Advancement of Learning and Teaching in Higher Education at the time of the report, is now known as the Higher Education Academy.

The committee's sponsors, UUK, SCOP and the HEFCE, and the agencies responsible for quality enhancement, have issued a press release on the report.

The TQEC has also delivered a report on external examiners, requested by the HEFCE.

The TQEC's interim report, from September 2002, is also available.
