Collaborative Provision Annual Review

The principles of the annual review process of modules and programmes offered by the University also apply to programmes covered by Collaborative Provision arrangements.

For the purpose of annual review, these have been categorised as follows:

  • Validated provision is defined as an arrangement where the University judges a programme or module developed and delivered by another organisation as being of appropriate quality and standard to lead to one of the University’s awards or an award of credit.

  • UoB collaborative programmes are defined as programmes which are partially delivered and/or supported by a collaborative organisation.

For validated programmes, new UoB collaborative programmes (in their first and possibly second year), and UoB programmes involving a significant proportion of delivery by the collaborative organisation:

  • Individual Collaborative Programme Review forms will be sent to relevant Collaborative Programmes Officers (CPOs) and/or Programme Directors in early June.  CPOs and/or Programme Directors should complete the Collaborative Programme Review form in conjunction with the relevant collaborative organisation.

  • Collaborative Programme Review forms should be uploaded to SharePoint by 2nd September 2019 (UG) and 2nd December (PGT) to enable any issues to be fed into the SEP by 9th September 2019 (UG) and 9th December (PGT).

  • The completion of Collaborative Programme Review forms is additional to other annual review requirements for UoB collaborative programmes (with the exception of validated programmes), such as completion of module review forms.  Issues identified in Collaborative Programme Review forms should be included in the School Education Plan, if appropriate.

All other UoB collaborative programmes:

  • Will not be required to complete a Collaborative Programme Review form. Schools should review the programmes (and associated Tableau data) as part of the annual review process (leading to the School Education Plan).

A list of all collaborative programmes (identifying those for which a Collaborative Programme Review Form will be required) will be sent for information in early June to School Heads of Quality (or equivalent) and to the College Deputy Director of Education (or equivalent).

Consideration of collaborative provision forms

It is the responsibility of Programme Directors and CPOs to ensure that the Collaborative Programme Review forms are uploaded on SharePoint, discussed at School-level, and transmitted to the College Quality Assurance and Approval Committee for approval before they can be submitted to the University Collaborative Provision Committee.

All forms for the review of collaborative provision arrangements, guidance and deadlines are available from SharePoint.

Any queries about the annual review process for collaborative provision should be directed to Elisa Parry (e.parry@bham.ac.uk; telephone:  ext. 48705)
