Monitoring collaborative provision
A range of monitoring systems and approaches are in place across De Montfort University (DMU), to ensure standards are appropriate and comparable. To maintain parity, the same processes are used for monitoring both standard DMU and collaborative provision. However due to the higher risks presented, greater central oversight is maintained for collaborative provision.
The day-to-day management of collaborative programmes and monitoring of standards is devolved to faculties, in line with standard in-house provision. Non-faculty based programmes are overseen by the Validation Service which sits under the Educational Partnerships, within the Department of Academic Quality (DAQ).
Key dates and timescales for activities and processes for the management of collaborative provision are identified in the annual calendar of quality monitoring activities. Further detail about the processes is available in section 2 in the guide to managing collaborative provision.
All forms, templates and prompts relating to collaborative provision are listed in section 6 in the guide to managing collaborative provision, and they can be found in the DAQ guidance and forms webpage.
