Quality Enhancement Directorate


Building a holistic approach to quality   

Welcome to th​e QED website.  The two units of Academic Standards and Quality Unit (ASQU) and Learning and Teaching Development Unit (LTDU) have combined to form a new directorate focusing on an integrated approach to quality – addressing both assurance and enhancement. The new team is called the Quality Enhancement Directorate/Cyfarwyddiaeth Gwella Ansawdd - representing the drive towards an enhancement-led quality agenda.

We deliver an integrated, collaborative approach to working – with teams of qualified, professional agile practitioners.  Streamlined processes, with intelligent use of data, a proportionate and risk-based approach to quality assessment and the opportunity to embed pedagogic and innovative programme design enable the University to focus on student outcomes and student success.  

The ultimate goal is to build fully-integrated high performing teams, realigned to the programme and student life cycles.  The structure of these teams will enable an improved and simpler service to Schools, partners and other stakeholders.
