Our partners:

Faculty support and allocations

At Q&APP we are committed to maintain and develop a high-quality, transformative, new century curriculum and PQM which is relevant, futuristic and responsive to industry and society.  In order to achieve this we provide specialist curriculum support to Faculties. We have a Senior Curriculum Specialist (SCSs) on each campus who are members of the Faculties’ teaching and learning committees, and liaise with the Deputy Deans TL and RI (for higher degrees), School and Programme Directors, Senior Faculty Administrators, Managers and curriculum teams.

Collaboration with Corporate Relations and Marketing (CRM): Student Recruitment 

The Marketing and Student Recruitment Department assists Faculties and Q&APP with market information, job/student market trends and competitor analysis to determine market interest for qualifications and offer guidance when developing new programmes.

Collaboration with CTL

In terms of curriculation responsibilities, Q&APP collaborates closely with Centre for Teaching and Learning (CTL). Q&APP is responsible for the macro- and meso-curriculation at the qualification and programme levels. One of CTLs responsibilities, on the other hand, is to support faculties at micro or modular level. Since these curriculum development levels are interlinked, a close working relationship exists between Q&APP and CTL.

Collaboration with the Quality Enhancement Office (QE)

Q&APP liaises with the Quality Enhancement Office to provide support for internal programme evaluations (IPEs) and external programme evaluations (EPEs). We assist Faculties with the preparation of the qualification and programme documents for the IPEs and EPEs. As interviewees for the IPE and EPE panels, Q&APP responds to specific curriculum matters and assist faculties with their consequent improvement plans. 

Collaboration with the Unit for Distance Learning (UDL)

Q&APP collaborates with the UDL on the curriculum planning design and development of qualifications and academic programmes to be delivered in the distance mode of provisioning.

Collaboration with Strategic Intelligence (SI)

Q&APP is dependent on the SI department for accurate data required for the planning of qualifications and academic programmes.

Registrar (PQM)

Q&APP supports and advises the Registrar on related PQM matters.
