safeguarding standards and improving the quality of UK higher education

What do we mean by 'confidence'? 

Confidence judgement  A judgement by a QAA review or audit team that 'confidence can reasonably be placed in the soundness of an institution's current and likely future management of the academic standards of its awards and/or of the quality of the learning opportunities available to students' (two separate judgements for standards and learning opportunities).

The alternative to a confidence judgement is for the QAA review team to express either limited confidence or no confidence in the issues cited above.
