BAC Thematic Review

BAC has undertaken the first thematic review of inspections conducted under the Independent Higher Education scheme between 2015 – 2018. The review identified trends within the inspection reports which include areas requiring improvements (e.g. not meeting BAC standards) and identified areas of strength or good practice.  The review focused on two inspection areas; General Academic Management and Administration and Quality Management Assurance and Enhancement.
