Programme teams subject to Educational Governance quality monitoring complete a self-assessment report using an agreed template. This is used to provide descriptive information about the programme (key outputs, strategic drivers, resources etc), arrangements for managing quality, standards and criteria applying to the programme, and performance against established criteria.
Teams will also provide brief information about their main challenges, inclusivity of their programme, the key risks to quality, and the priorities for future development or quality improvement. The report is submitted to the Educational & Research Governance Executive Group for review at a scheduled meeting. Each report is allocated to a Critical Reader, who takes lead responsibility for analysing the self-assessment document and any supplementary information on behalf of the Executive Group.
