APL Update

(9 July 2014)

Following our consultation on APL (9th June - 4th July 2014), we are now analysing the consultation responses and updating our guidance and templates.

The feedback on the consultation suggested that TEIs would welcome more detailed guidance to explain Durham's approach to APL, and to clarify how this would work for the Common Awards Scheme.

We have expanded our guidance document and are in the process of making minor amendments to improve the Checklist and Mapping Document templates.

We hope to be in a position to finalise the APL guidance and documents by mid-July. At this point, we will publish a summary of the consultation outcomes on our website.

Once the guidance and documents have been finalised, we will publish the information in the TEI Handbook. We will also issue a call for all TEIs to submit any relevant APL claims for University approval. We will be treating this as a high priority activity and will aim to respond to all claims as quickly as possible.

If you have any questions in the meantime, please contact us.
