The purpose of this Committee is to provide impartial and independent advice, via the College Director of Education, to the Head of College and College Board on all matters relating to learning and teaching in the College in order to maintain and promote excellent and effective learning and teaching.

The group has responsibility for supporting the Director of Education and each other and for making recommendations to the Head of College and College Board in three broad areas: 

  • Strategy in relation to Learning and Teaching across the College (specifically, who we teach, what, how, and at what fee?)
  • Strategic oversight of School Learning and Teaching process – including approval and deletion of programmes and modules
  • Actions to promote the collective reputation of the College as a centre of academic excellence for the study of the Social Sciences including the strategic oversight and, where appropriate, the co-ordination, marketing and financial arrangements for all programmes
