Collaborative Provision – BSDC and Staffordshire University

Staffordshire University is committed to working with partner organisations to raise aspirations and improve progression into Higher Education. Collaborative partnerships enable the university to extend its provision locally, nationally and internationally.

The university recognises that collaborative activity poses particular challenges for the assurance and maintenance of academic standards and the management and enhancement of the student experience. The university seeks to address these issues by providing clear guidance to both university and partner staff. Wherever possible the quality assurance and enhancement policies set out elsewhere on this website clarify how they should be applied within the context of collaborative provision.

This page provides access to additional policies and associated documents focussing specifically on the management and quality assurance of collaborative provision.  These policies are aligned with Chapter B10 of the UK Quality Code for Higher Education: Managing Higher Education with Others.

To view relevant documents and policies relating to courses offered in partnership with Staffordshire University, download them in the related documents box on this page.
