Faculty Taught Student Education Committees

Faculty Taught Student Education Committees are responsible for the quality and standard of the school's student education provision, quality assurance procedures, developing student education policy and identifying, implementing and sharing good practice.

The Faculty Taught Student Education Committee (FTSEC) reports to the Taught Student Education Board, and is responsible at Faculty level for:

  • assuring the quality of taught programmes
  • quality assurance procedures and developing student education policy
  • directly overseeing and monitoring programme and module review and the managing and assuring of the quality of student education provision
  • considering outcomes of external and professional, statutory and regulatory body (PSRB) reviews and subsequent action by the school
  • developing, identifying and sharing good practice.

Committee papers

Documents, including agendas, committee papers and minutes are available on Sharepoint. These can be accessed by any student or member of staff, but you will need to log on to the system with your University IT username and password.

Terms of reference

 You can also download the FTSEC Terms of Reference document (PDF).

FTSEC subgroups

Each FTSEC establishes a subgroup of members to take particular responsibility for issues relating to one School or area within the Faculty. Membership of the subgroups may vary according to Faculty needs.

The FTSEC subgroup gives detailed consideration to new programmes through the Programme Approval Group (PAG) and participates in Student Academic Experience Reviews (SAERs), making reports and recommendations to the FTSEC as appropriate.

Chair's action

There are specific situations in which authorisation can be given by Chair's action:

  • appointment of external examiners
  • appointment of internal examiners
  • new modules resulting from the appointment of new staff or loss of staff which have to be dealt with over the summer period
  • urgent action resulting from programme reviews which needs to be implemented for the start of the session.

In other situations Chair's action will only be used in exceptional circumstances.
