To manage academic quality and standards, SIRM takes account of the QAA Framework for Higher Education Qualifications, the Code of Practice and Subject Benchmark statements, and reflects the principles and expectations of these frameworks in its awards. Overall responsibility for Quality and Standards is located with Academic Board. Academic Board responsibilities span research, teaching and scholarship, admission and assessment of students, appointment of external examiners, academic standards, working towards ISO9001, Investors in People, Information technology--Learning, education and training, Quality management, assurance and metrics, the curriculum and review of programmes.
UK higher education has a well-deserved reputation across the world for its high level of academic quality and rigorous academic standards. SIRM follows QAA Code of practice, which provides a guide for universities and colleges on managing academic standards and quality. The Code of practice covers a range of issues and is divided into sections. Some of the sections relate directly to courses and the other sections have aspects and guidance that have an impact on the academic standards and quality of courses, but are managed by the university or college as a whole.
