Academic Development and Quality Enhancement

Enhancement

Work is currently underway to define more clearly what enhancement means to the University.

Enhancement is defined by QAA for the purposes of review in England and Northern Ireland as: 'taking deliberate steps at provider level to improve the quality of learning opportunities'. This definition means that enhancement is more than a collection of examples of good practice that might be found across a provider. It is about a provider being aware that it has a responsibility to improve the quality of learning opportunities, and to have policies, structures and processes in place to make sure it can do so. It means that the willingness to consider enhancement stems from a high-level awareness of the need for improvement and is embedded throughout the provider.
