Features of good practice Recommendations for action

The team has identified the following good practice:

  • the effective academic and pastoral support
  • the innovative approach to language support facilitated by the employment of residential conversation tutors.

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

  • support staff to engage with the Academic Infrastructure and relevant external reference points to inform teaching
  • improve assessment feedback to more clearly reflect intended learning outcomes, grade descriptors and marking criteria
  • consider the process for sharing external examiners and marking moderators reports with the University to more fully support effective oversight of assessment
  • formalise a framework for staff development that captures the needs of both the individual and the College
  • make the pre-enrolment oral guidance on pedagogic and cultural differences between the UK and Japan available on the College website.
