Section 7.2 - Staff recruitment, development and training

Guidance on completing Section 7.2 of form A part 2 - Staff recruitment, development and training.

Why does the IET need this information?

The IET needs to see that there is an adequate number of qualified staff in place to support the programme during the period of accreditation.

What format should we present the information in?

Please provide a short statement about the university/departmental policy on the recruitment, development and training of new and existing staff (including the annual spend) including professional registration.

Is there anything else we need to be aware of when completing this section?

The panel may ask the following questions:

Is there a staff development / training plan including professional registration for all members of staff? Is there an adequate budget available for training? If necessary is there a succession plan?
