The primary purpose of Quality Assurance and Enhancement sub-Committee (QAEC) is to consider, advise, develop and report on all aspects of Quality Assurance and Enhancement in line with the Quality Handbook, UK Quality Code, guidance and advice provided by the Quality Assurance Agency, University policy and procedure and other sector-wide guidance and requirements.
QAEC reports to the University’s Academic Development Committee (ADC) and receives reports from the Faculty/Institute Academic Development and Collaborative Provision and Enhancement subsidiary Committees.
In line with the University’s Governance structure, and prior to wider dissemination, QAEC is responsible for considering feedback from students, and academic and professional services colleagues. Working within a culture of continuous improvement, the sub-Committee makes recommendations to ADC about the development of quality assurance and enhancement initiatives, policy and practice.
QAEC serves to develop for ADC approval, and in respect of the University’s taught and collaborative programme provision, a strategic approach to enhancing the quality of teaching provision and student learning experience.
