Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF)

We are thrilled to announce that the London School of Management Education (LSME) has been honoured with an overall Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF) Silver rating in recognition of our outstanding commitment to delivering high-quality teaching, learning, and outcomes for our students. This public recognition reflects our dedication to providing an outstanding quality of educational experience which was rated as Gold and the high quality student outcomes rated as Silver. These ratings were awarded in September 2023.

TEF is the national assessment in the United Kingdom that evaluates the quality of teaching, learning environments and student outcomes in higher education institutions. Institutions are awarded Gold, Silver, or Bronze categories which signify increasing degrees of performance above minimum quality requirements. A provider receives a lower category of ‘requires improvement’ if it has not shown enough evidence of performance above the minimum quality requirements.

As an independent Higher Education Provider in a highly competitive and increasingly regulated sector, we are honoured to have been rated so highly against the criteria used by the Office for Students (OfS) in judging the effectiveness and quality of our teaching provision.

LSME was awarded an overall TEF Silver rating as a result of:

Our performance was assessed as Gold for the Educational Experience which our students enjoy. This is based on:

  1. Excellent Teaching: We have demonstrated excellent teaching practices that engage and inspire our students, fostering a culture of learning and academic achievement.
  2. Outstanding Student Support: We provide comprehensive support services to our students, ensuring their well-being, personal development and academic success throughout their journey at LSME.
  3. High-Quality Learning Resources: Our institution offers state-of-the-art facilities and extensive learning resources, creating an enriching environment for education.

We were rated Silver for our very high quality Student Outcomes.  Our students achieve very good outcomes, including high rates of progression to further study or employment, reflecting the effectiveness of our programmes and the dedication of our staff. This outstanding and high quality provision benefits all of our students, including students from underrepresented groups which constitute a high proportion of LSME’s students.

Prospective and existing students of LSME can expect:

  • Quality Education: Access to high-quality teaching and learning resources that enhance your knowledge and skills.
  • Supportive Environment: Personalised support services to guide you throughout your academic journey, ensuring your success and well-being.
  • Employability: Opportunities for professional development and strong industry connections, enhancing your employability prospects upon graduation.

We are proud of this achievement and will continue to strive for excellence in all areas of education. Thank you for being part of our vibrant academic community at LSME.
