Integrated Quality Enhancement Review
In 2011, the college received its final Integrated Quality Enhancement Review (IQER) report from the Quality Assurance Agency (QAA) for Higher Education, the independent body responsible for maintaining high quality and standards. The college received the highest grade possible in each of the three assessment areas which were the management of academic standards, the quality of learning opportunities and the quality of public information.
The college was also awarded with four areas of good practice which include:
- High quality of support for students, especially during the application and induction processes and for students with learning difficulties and/or disabilities
- High quality of information, advice and guidance for prospective and new students such as the information packs provided at the applicant events and the welcome packs given out at induction
- A strategy to establish a higher education ethos and learning experience through its management of learning resources
- Strong leadership in the management of higher education which involves delivery and support staff in the process
Audit of collaborative provision
In 2011 the college was delighted that the QAA’s audit of collaborative provision at the University of Derby, one of the college’s HE partners, highlighted the strong and constructive relationships between the university and its partners as an area of good practice.
