Developing the HE quality regime
The OfS continues to stress that students and taxpayers are their primary focus, being key stakeholders in the quality of education delivered in the sector. New proposals for quality and standards are being consulted upon which change the emphasis from HEIs just having appropriate quality processes, to ensuring that the courses themselves offer value and are therefore deemed to be ‘high quality courses’ and deliver the skills needed for a student to develop a successful career.
The proposals, which HEIs have an opportunity to comment upon, are targeted to ensure, in part that, as the tabloids would describe them, ‘mickey mouse’ degrees are not being offered. The OfS is saying the new quality systems will be ‘principles based’ to be applied across all courses provided.
