Removing TEF awards from marketing materials

Posted on 1 September 2021

The Office for Students (OfS) has advised us not to use our Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF) awards in materials aimed at students from September 2021.

Current TEF awards had been due to expire in summer 2021, with a new scheme and new awards expected this year. 

However, awards will now not be granted until 2023, so existing awards have been extended by the OfS. 

This means we should not use our TEF Gold Award in marketing or promotional materials aimed at students, including using these logos:

If you are using these logos in your email signature, you should remove them.
