Faculty Heads of Quality

On behalf of the Pro Vice-Chancellor/Dean, the faculty Head of Quality has responsibility for the implementation of changes arising from new university policy, for ensuring due processes are followed, and for raising issues at higher levels. Essentially, they are a 'watchdog' for instances where quality might become at risk, helping to identify and share best practice.

Specifically, the faculty Head of Quality is responsible for the management of faculty quality assurance arrangements relating to programme development and validation, modification, and the continuous monitoring of subjects, programmes and modules. These arrangements include periodic review, module enhancement and student feedback, performance analysis at module and programme level.

They provide an important link between the faculty, central quality committees, and central departments such as the Department of Academic Quality (DAQ). Each faculty has a Faculty Academic Committee (FAC) that supports this role. This responsibility is exercised through close working relationship with the faculty Heads of Studies.

Full details of the responsibilities of the faculty Head of Quality role are available.
