Processes for annual monitoring, review and reporting are in place across all credit-bearing provision and Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) and support systematic reflection and enhancement

Annual Programme Monitoring

Schools carry out annual programme monitoring, implementing a process which meets both local contexts and institution-wide principles and uses standard data.  Schools will decide on the optimum clustering of programmes.  All credit bearing courses offered by a School are included.  All programmes are monitored annually.      

School Annual Quality Report

Schools report annually to Senate Quality Assurance Committee on key themes and actions from in-year monitoring, review and reflection, providing institutional oversight of issues and good practice.

School reports will inform the University’s annual report to the Scottish Funding Council. 

College Annual Quality Report

Colleges will submit annual quality reports to Senate Quality Assurance Committee outlining their action plan for the support of teaching excellence and capacity building, their overview of performance data and themes to inform the Committee’s forward planning.

Colleges play a key role in supporting Schools’ annual monitoring, review and reporting processes.
