Monitoring, review and approval of skills provision, such as the PG CHEP, is
considered directly by AQSC to ensure cross-faculty and departmental
consideration. Where approval has been delegated to the Executive or
Faculty Dean, or consideration is required by the Dean(s) in advance of committee
approval (as set out in the PDFs above), the Deans of the faculty of Arts and Humanities will consider requests (in consultation with other Deans where they
consider this to be appropriate).
Dean’s authority to approve
Where the Executive Dean has the authority to approve matters on behalf of the
Faculty Education Committee, the Dean may opt to refer the matter to the Faculty
Education Committee for consideration. Some tasks typically undertaken by the Dean, may be undertaken either by the
Executive or Faculty Dean.
