Commenting on the Government’s Green Paper Fulfilling our Potential: Teaching Excellence, Social Mobility and Student Choice for Higher Education, Professor Stephanie Marshall, Chief Executive, Higher Education Academy, said:
“We welcome the Government’s focus on teaching and look forward to contributing in the consultation process. Students have the right to excellent teaching to achieve their full potential, and this will come about through a shared commitment by institutions and individuals to improvement.
“We are clear that those involved in teaching must be given the incentives and reward, as well as the environment, for continued professional development so that students have access to the best possible learning experience throughout their time in higher education.
“I am also pleased to see that the Grade Point Average (GPA) is included in this consultation following our extensive work in this area and the pilot study we led in the sector last year.”
