Volume 2: Programme Design, Approval, Monitoring & Review

Section 4: Modifications

Please note:
The below ‘Modification Procedure’ is suspended for the duration of the 20/21 academic session.

The Quality Enhancement Directorate (QED) has assigned a Senior Quality Officer and Learning and Teaching Specialist to each school to support them in their planning and to meet with ADSEs prior to Term 1 to review and feedback on proposed changes. The proposed curriculum changes should build on what academic staff, examination boards, exam administrators, externals and, crucially, students think about the assessment approaches adopted for the Spring/Summer 2020 semester and work this feedback into planning for Term 1 but also thereafter planning for the 21/22 session.

In order to ensure the best learning experience of students during the pandemic, schools, with QED support, may approve temporary changes to learning and teaching approaches, assessment changes and, in some limited cases, programme structure for the 20/21 session. Details of any changes made to programmes for the 20/21 session can be found here
