The service provides direct support for departments, working with key departmental contacts and the relevant Deputy Heads of Faculty. Areas of support include:

  • Curriculum Development (new programmes and modules; programme and module changes; programme and module withdrawals);
  • Interpretation of regulation, guidance and policy for learning, teaching and assessment;
  • External Examiners (appointment, fee payment, reports and responses);
  • Boards of Examiners and Assessment Irregularities;
  • Annual Monitoring and Periodic Review and Revalidation;
  • Dissemination and interpretation of educational metrics (NSS and PTES results, statistics for retention and attainment)
  • Collborative Programmes (articulation arrangements, teaching collaborations, validation agreements; development, approval and monitoring)
  • PSRB and other external submissions;
  • Concessions, Appeals and APNs for PGT students.

We also support Faculty Education Committees and faculty groups.
