Collaborative programmes are subject to normal annual programme review mechanisms to ensure the academic quality and standards of validated/franchised programmes are benchmarked against and remain comparable to that of internal provision. From academic year 2017-18, the University's approach to annual programme review has been replaced by Continuous Action for Programme Enhancement (CAPE). University Coordinators are responsible for engaging in this process and for submitting and evaluating relevant information in line with School/Faculty deadlines each year. Collaborative organisations should also be consulted as appropriate. Outcomes for each collaborative programme will be reported to the Collaborative Provision Group (CPG) for note and to provide assurances on the academic quality of the awards being delivered.
