As with the Quality Manual (QM), the Partnership Operational Manual (POM) explains the key stages of our procedures for managing our collaborative taught provision, and also looks at the additional activities involved in setting up robust partnerships with other educational providers to deliver courses in the University's name.
Each chapter addresses a core activity and contains within it explanatory text, contextual information and, as appropriate, the forms necessary to complete the procedures.
Major review and updating takes place usually over the summer for the start of a new academic session. However, updating and insertion of new versions of individual text/forms may occur during the year as the need arises. Where such updating takes place, key users (such as school representatives and heads of department) will be advised of the introduction of new/updated versions.
