Quality Assurance and Enhancement

The quality and enhancement activities of the Royal Academy of Dance’ Faculty of Education consists of a number of elements all designed to deliver academic programmes of a high academic standard and a high quality student learning experience.

Faculty of Education, Quality Assurance and Enhancement

Faculty of Education procedures for quality assurance are required to take into account the various components of the QAA’s UK Quality Code for Higher Education. The Quality Code has three sections:

  • Part A: Setting and maintaining academic standards
  • Part B: Assuring and enhancing academic quality
  • Part C: Information about higher education provision

Each part contains the expectations that all HE providers are required to meet and give a series of indicators which illustrate how the expectations can be met.

The Quality Assurance Agency carried out a Higher Education Review (Alternative Providers) in June 2017. The outcome of the Review was that the Royal Academy of Dance has met UK expectations in all four of the judgements: the maintenance of academic standards; the quality of student learning opportunities; the quality of information about learning opportunities and the enhancement of learning opportunities.

The Royal Academy of Dance has published its action plan in response to the recent Higher Education Review (Alternative Providers) in June 2017. The action plan was approved by the Royal Academy of Dance Education Sub-committee in November 2017.
