The Incredible Machine is back. The government has published its plans for Year 2 of the Teaching Excellence Framework, following a technical consultation.

And so it’s time to refresh our visual guide. The headlines are all about the new Gold, Silver and Bronze ratings now available. But we’ve also been given far more detail about which inputs will be assessed, and how the whole process will work. So this new diagram inevitably looks more complex to previous versions.

The link to fees remain, but not this year so this has been blued out. However, we are keeping it there to show how the awards will interact with fees in future years.

You can read the government’s new specification and other related documents here.

As ever, if you have any comments or suggestions for how the Incredible Machine can be improved, do let us know.
