CVU Seminars 2018-19

Introduction to Collaborative Arrangements

Friday 7 June 2019

Regent’s University London, Inner Circle, London, NW1 4NS

This seminar is of interest to staff who work with or who are new to collaborative frameworks, and will include presentations, case studies and interactive opportunities.

“Where a provider works in partnership with other organisations, it has in place effective arrangements to ensure that the standards of its awards are credible and secure irrespective of where or how courses are delivered or who delivers them” – UK Quality Code

With collaborative partnerships continuing to be tightly scrutinised, this seminar aims to illustrate why collaborative frameworks are built the way that they are.

The QAA will cover expectations for common and core practices as outlined in the new Quality Code. The Open University will talk about the setting up of a partnership and what could possibly go wrong. The University of Essex will outline how academic partnerships are maintained so that they stand the test of time.

Degree Apprenticeships: The continuing story…

Friday 5 July 2019

Woburn House, 20 – 24 Tavistock Square, London, WC1H 9HQ

This full-day seminar will give you a chance to listen to and engage with the current challenges, opportunities and institutional case studies surrounding degree apprenticeships. The day will be an opportunity to gain a full understanding of degree apprenticeship policy developments and best practice to help you make the most of the opportunities available to your institution.

Degree apprenticeships continue to be at the forefront of the university agenda. When looking at the financial benefits for both students and universities it is easy to see why they have become such a popular route of education but there are clear challenges for Higher Education providers and their dual responsibilities for quality assurance in delivering apprenticeships.

To help set the scene and spark discussions, we will be joined by Dr Alison Felce, Standards and Frameworks Officer, Universities, Quality Enhancement and Standards at the Quality Assurance Agency (QAA)

As ever, this joint CVU/Quality Strategy Network (QSN) event offers the opportunity for us to get together in a constructive and supportive environment and we look forward greatly to welcoming delegates to our 5th July Seminar.
