Mrs Jane Frost

Quality Assurance Advisor

Academic Partnerships


I work part-time as a member of the Central Quality Office.   I have worked with colleagues on preparations for QAA Higher Education Review (and previously Institutional Audits), Collaborative Provision Audit and Overseas Audit.  My specific tasks involve compiling and updating the institution's Collaborative Provision Register (CPR) and the Register of Professional, Statutory and Regulatory Bodies (PSRBs) - and ensuring that these are referred to the appropriate University Teaching and Learning Committee meetings.  I co-ordinate institutional responses to draft QAA subject benchmark statements during their consultation period.  I am Central Quality Office's liaison representative with the Faculty of Arts (attending their Teaching and Learning Committee meetings).  I assist a colleague annually with the institutional summary of external examiners' reports. As my background is in approval and review I also contribute, as and when required, to the general programme of reviews and approvals co-ordinated by the Review Team within the Central Quality Office.  I update annually the University's Quality Assurance Handbook.
