Academic Development and Quality Enhancement


ADQE provides a range of services to schools, students, external partners and other stakeholders. We work in four core business areas: curriculum, academic standards, partnership and enhancement.

Key areas of activity include:
  • Support for the development of the Teaching and Learning Strategy
  • Guidance on new course development and validation
  • Maintaining and providing guidance on the examination and assessment regulations
  • Provision of information to support the student experience, for example on exceptional circumstances claims, temporary withdrawal and e-submission
  • Collaboration with a range of external partners
