Chapter 35: Changing patterns of accountability in the UK: from QA to TEF
This chapter discusses the main changes in quality assurance in the UK, and specifically England, between 1992 and March 2017. It summarises the main developments, offers an analysis of the causes, and discusses changes in the balance of accountability. The central argument is that accountability for quality in English higher education is shifting away from the academy to a combination of increased accountability to the state and the market, with uncertain but probably damaging impacts on both quality assurance and quality.
