Quality Assurance and Enhancement

Quality Assurance and Enhancement is defined as ‘taking deliberate steps to bring about continuous improvement in the effectiveness of the learning experience of students’. GCU assurance and enhancement strategies seek to promote an inclusive approach to learning by embedding the principles of equality and diversity throughout the institution, valuing individuals regardless of background or groups to which they belong. GCU commits to providing opportunities for staff and students to engage in meaningful professional conversations to foster effective partnership working in an environment that is sensitive to the diverse population on campus. Partnership in this sense reflects the UK Quality Code concept of joint working, based on a mature relationship and mutual respect and not a formal legal relationship.
