Collaborative provision

For any collaborative partnership arrangement leading to credit or an award of the University, Keele takes ultimate responsibility for academic standards and the quality of learning opportunities, irrespective of where these are delivered or who provides them. To ensure a shared institutional understanding of the requirements for collaborative provision partnership arrangements, the University has defined the nature of collaborative provision and the underpinning procedures, articulated through a Collaborative Provision Code of Practice. The Code of Practice clarifies the necessary requirements expected when exploring, developing and approving new collaborative provision partnerships, their implementation and ongoing management, setting out measures to ensure the University meets its responsibilities as a UK degree awarding body and its duty of care and contractual obligations to students, external stakeholders and partner institutions. 

For detailed information on the University’s requirements in regard to collaborative provision please see the Collaborative Provision Code of Practice. Associated forms and guides can be found on the Forms and Guides webpage via the link below.
