Call for expressions of interest to join Anthropology Subject Benchmark Statement Advisory Group

Date: April 8 - 2022

QAA has reopened a call for expressions of interest to join the Subject Benchmark Statement Advisory Group for Anthropology to ensure that the group is more fully representative of the subject community. Expressions of interest from academic colleagues and students from ethnic communities are particularly welcome.

Our aim is to ensure that membership of each Subject Benchmark Statement advisory group is fully representative of the rich diversity of the UK higher education sector. Both the membership of advisory groups and the development and content of the Statements will embody QAA’s commitment to promoting equality, diversity and inclusivity across all our work. 

QAA leads on the development and publication of Subject Benchmark Statements. These Statements are reviewed on a cyclical basis to ensure they are as useful as possible for discipline communities and can inform a range of purposes across the sector, including course design and providing support for securing academic standards.

Membership of the advisory group spans the four countries of the UK, and is appropriately balanced between academic and professional practice (where relevant to the subject). Please note that academic representatives will only be drawn from higher education providers who are QAA Members. A major benefit of being a QAA Member is the opportunity to shape and inform our policies, standards and sector reference points, of which Subject Benchmark Statements are a key aspect.

How to apply

If you would like to be considered for the advisory group for Anthropology, please submit an expression of interest using our online form, outlining how your experience and skills meet the requirements of the role.

Further information

The deadline to submit an expression of interest is midday on Friday 6 May 2022.
