As Faculty Validation Officer I am responsible for managing the administration of the Quality Assurance processes within the Faculty and for the provision of related management information. This includes all matters relating to new course approvals, course modifications, unit and course management, periodic programme reviews, annual reporting and external examiners.

I act as a point of reference for advice and guidance relating to Quality Assurance processes and other University policies, procedures and protocols. I ensure faculty compliance with dates and deadlines related to quality management and review cycles and maintain an information base of all courses and units.

I provide Faculty-wide support in the preparation for external quality assessments and professional accreditation and qualitative data for annual and institutional reviews.

I monitor compliance with conditions and recommendations arising from internal and external approval, audit, assessment and inspection, liaising with external assessors as required.

I work closely with our Associate Dean (Academic) on all matter appertaining to Quality Assurance and all review and approval processes.

Having worked in both the Portsmouth Business School and managed the Foundation Direct Centre for Excellence in Teaching and Learning, my priority is always to provide a high level of customer service.
