Continuous Improvement

The continuous improvement approach shifts the process of course development from one of static, once a year planning, to one which constantly evaluates, reflects and makes improvements in light of course performance and feedback from both students and staff throughout the academic year and course approval cycle.

This is achieved by:

  • Centralising the position of Boards of Study (BoS) as the vehicle to regularly monitor and oversee course development.
  • Introduction of the Course Continuous Improvement Plan (CCIP) to enable teams to record, evaluate and gather evidence of their course improvement actions and outcomes, as they go along. The CCIP will replace the need to write extensive action plans and commentaries every year.
  • Replacing the previous 'Annual Programme Monitoring (APM)' process by using Boards of Study to continuously monitor and oversee course development throughout the academic year and course approval cycle.
