THIS EVENT IS CPD CERTIFIED
This seminar examines key issues for quality assurance in UK higher education institutions, and degree classification systems used by HEIs, following calls for the sector to take action on grade inflation, and the creation of the Office for Students (OfS).
In light of the QAA and UK Standing Committee for Quality Assessment (UKSCQA)’s consultation on the review of the UK Quality Code for Higher Education, which set out proposals for a new approach to the Code, delegates will consider the updated Code’s new ‘expectations and core practices’.
Bringing together further key stakeholders and policymakers, sessions will discuss the next steps for tackling ‘essay mills’, key issues around reforms to degree-awarding powers (DAPs), and the future for the degree classification system - including addressing grade inflation, next steps for Grade Point Average systems and the way ahead for external examination.
