Programme approval

Programme Approval

  • Usually conducted ‘conjointly’ between the University and the PSRBs

  • Programme teams map their programmes to show how they meet the relevant PSRB’s standards for education/proficiency

  • Reviewers scrutinise the evidence provided and attend the approval event on behalf of the PSRB

  • Conditions and recommendations are jointly agreed and the reviewer reports back to the PSRB


Programme monitoring

Programme Monitoring

  • Approved programmes are subject to annual monitoring (risk-based) to ensure that they continue to meet the PSRB’s standards

  • Process may involve a visit/inspection, involving staff, students and placement providers

  • The University is accountable for the management of quality (and risk) of the education and practice-based elements of the programme

  • Need to work in partnership with placement providers to ensure the quality of the learning experience and the protection of the public
