An analysis of Teacher Education Research in the REF

Monday 30 October, 2023 – Monday 30 October, 2023
12:00 PM – 1:00 PM


Part of the School of Education Research Seminar Series 2023-24.

About the seminar

Professor Linda la Velle presents findings of a novel mapping exercise to assess the extent to which initial teacher education (ITE) focused research was returned in the 2014 Research Excellence Framework (REF).

A sample of 12 English HEIs that provided ITE programmes and returned outputs to the 2014 REF were identified. Analysis of these outputs shows that less than 6 per cent were focused on ITE. The implications of this analysis are discussed.

Linda la Velle is Professor of Education and Ethics Lead in the School of Education at Bath Spa University.
