The table below gives information about the teaching quality for each of our departments.
- In the first round of teaching assessments, subjects were given a rating of excellent, satisfactory or unsatisfactory. In the second round, subjects were given a score with a maximum of 24. Some departments were assessed jointly.
- An assessment of the Education Department’s Initial Teacher Training provision was converted to an ‘Excellent’ by HEFCE in 1994 and the department has maintained the same high standards in subsequent OFSTED inspections.
- The Department of Sociological Studies was assessed twice, for Social Work and Social Policy, receiving an ‘Excellent’ on both occasions. HEFCE then deemed the third area of the department’s activity, Sociology, to be 'Excellent' too.
