Date: 20 February 2018

Dr Simon Jones, Dean of the Guildhall School of Business and Law, recently contributed to the Further and Higher Education Forum Strategy on behalf of London Metropolitan University.

Held in Oxfordshire, the two day conference provided pioneering views on the existing and forthcoming challenges in the sector, with discussions focused on tangible solutions to these development areas. The event is bi-annually organised and attended by executives and directors in further and higher education. It is an opportunity to gain insight, network and create new contacts within the sector.

Dr Jones delivered a presentation which discussed the implications of the Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF) and Quality Assurance Mechanisms for the UK’s Higher Education sector.

He said: “Given the prominence of Trans National Education in the provision of Higher Education in the UK, I was delighted that conference was able to consider the importance of international relationships.

“The complexity of relationships universities sustain from international campuses to promoting franchises and agreeing validations. The focus on Quality Assurance, relationship management and the importance of the Student Experience made for a stimulating debate.”
