Bradford College is proud to announce that it has received the highest judgement possible in a review of its Higher Education provision.
The judgement follows the successful completion of the Integrated Quality and Enhancement Review (IQER) which was carried out in January by the Quality Assurance Agency (QAA), the body responsible for academic quality and standards in UK higher education. The review focuses on Higher Education courses within Further Education colleges in England.
The IQER team concluded that they had “Confidence”, the highest judgement possible, in the quality of the College’s Higher Education programmes and in the processes for managing the student learning experience.
Confidence was also placed in the College’s management of its responsibilities for the standards of the awards it offers on behalf of its awarding bodies; and in the College’s management of its responsibilities for the quality of learning opportunities it offers. The review team was also impressed with the specialist facilities available within the College; for example in Ophthalmic Dispensing Management, Engineering, Photography and Art & Design.
QAA also cited as good practice: responsiveness to the student voice; support for students; the accessibility of teaching staff; and relationships with local and regional employers, especially in informing curriculum development and providing work-related learning experiences for students.
David Smith, Dean of Higher Education at Bradford College said: “Bradford College has a long and successful history of delivering Higher Education spanning over 35 years. This most recent review of college Higher Education only serves to confirm the quality and range of our Higher Education provision. For the local community and particularly for those considering studying at degree level, it will be important to know that their local college offers such high quality Higher Education courses, across a wide range of subject areas.”
