Quality Assuring the Employer Role in GAs

Project: Knowledge Exchange

Project Details


This project aims to explore the employer role in delivering quality WBL in GAs. Within the QEF, GA providers are required to implement mechanisms to ensure effective arrangements are in place for managing academic standards and the quality of the student learning experience. HEIs must align to the UK Quality Code for Higher Education, which outlines the expectations and standards for managing the quality of provision and specific expectations for the delivery of degree level education. Provision is quality assured by the provider to be ‘credible and secure’ both in academic terms and in the context of Graduate Apprenticeships, in relation to the WBL elements that take place in the workplace. This project examines and establishes best practice in three specific aspects of GAs:

• Employer input to the design of the award;
• Employer input into planning the WBL content;
• Employer input into delivery.
The results will contribute to a broader QA project currently underway.
