The TEF is designed to give students more information when looking at options for further and higher education. Education providers are assessed on the quality of teaching and the outcomes they achieve, as well as taking into account student satisfaction, employment outcomes and retention rates. 

Lee Probert, Principal at City of Bristol College, said: “We are delighted with this result which confirms the high quality teaching and learning, leading to good progression for students, that our city offers. I am specifically pleased that a smaller higher education provider like City of Bristol College has achieved the same standard as the city’s well established universities, further reinforcing the quality of our provision. Our teaching provides high levels of rigour and stretch with excellent employer links and employment outcomes. The TEF matrix also highlighted that our students achieve excellent outcomes and are very highly satisfied with assessment and feedback.”

The College’s matrix assessment demonstrated that students achieve excellent outcomes. Furthermore students are very highly satisfied with assessment and feedback and very high proportions of students have outstanding employment and highly skilled employment and and/or further studies outcomes.
