Programme Appraisal and Enhancement (PAE)
The PAE process applies to all undergraduate (standard and non-standard), taught postgraduate programmes and UK and overseas collaborative provision (CP).
The PAE template and guidance is currently being updated following consultation activities and feedback from the first year of use. The revised PAE template and guidance will be published shortly and information sent to programme leaders by your faculty Associate Professor (Quality)/Head of Quality or via the Partnerships Manager (Quality), Sophia Harding, for collaborative provision.
The Programme Management Board (PMB) or equivalent sign off date for the first iteration of the 2018/19 UG PAEs is 21 September 2018 and 14 December 2018 for PGT and non-standard UG PAEs.
The dates above extend to collaborative partners who should ensure that a PMB or equivalent has signed off the first PAE version that will be submitted to DAQ.
PAEs are live documents and are expected to be updated as new information becomes available but as a minimum prior to submission to each meeting of a PMB or equivalent throughout the academic year.
PAE briefings and drop in sessions will be held to support programme leaders who are completing the PAE. Dates and information will be circulated in due course.
Please contact your faculty Associate Professor (Quality)/Head of Quality if you have any queries or Louise Salmon. Collaborative partners should contact Sophia Harding.
