Features of good practice Recommendations for action

The team has identified the following good practice:

  • effective working partnerships with awarding bodies
  • the use of UK and US external reference points in the management of academic standards
  • staff commitment to students' academic and pastoral support.

The team considers that it is advisable for the provider to:

  • ensure that second marking and moderation assessment procedures are consistently applied across all higher education programmes.

The team considers that it would be desirable for the provider to:

  • continue to develop a formal and explicit mapping process to manage the benchmarking of all UK and US programmes
  • monitor actions resulting from formal meetings to assist these in being taken to a successful conclusion
  • develop a formal mechanism to compare and contrast the student experience across all programmes
  • evaluate the impact of staff development on the students' learning experience.
