Our approval and monitoring processes ensure that programmes meet our education standards. More information about our standards is under the standards tab. All of our processes ensure our assessment of programmes is robust, rigorous and effective.
Annual monitoring is a retrospective documentary process to consider whether a programme continues to meet our education standards and that individuals who successfully complete the programme are able to meet the relevant proficiency standards.
Our major change process requires education providers to notify us of changes to the way in which a programme meets our education standards. Changes should be reported to us before they occur but it is possible for us to assess changes to programmes that have already taken place.
