How does it work?
You’ll be expected to serve for at least three years, with a minimum commitment of five days a year (six in year one). If you join the committee, you’ll be appointed for three years and then subject to annual renewal.
In your first year, you’ll attend one training day and observe two visits of two days each. In subsequent years, you’ll attend one training day and at least one visit (visits involve one to two days of preparation before and a half-day after for report review).
Visit Panel Chairs will also be expected to attend a one day Academic Accreditation Committee (AAC) to introduce visit reports they’ve chaired, provide offline advice on approving accreditation extensions, new degrees, and approval of action plans (two days a year) and produce visit reports (one day per visit).
