QSN 22/23 Webinar Series: Revisiting Programme Approval

In this webinar we will focus on how the programme approval process is evolving in institutions. In many cases this is to allow a greater focus on curriculum design: for colleagues in England priorities include reviewing how current processes meet OfS expectations in the revised B conditions in the regulatory framework. We will also look at how institutions are using the new QAA Hallmarks of Success playbook – Course Design, Approval and Management. The webinar will comprise a number of lightning talks followed by round table discussions.
