Governance Support

Find out how CADQ supports regulatory and governance functions to ensure NTU provides high-quality, robust education to students.

Understanding governance support

CADQ supports a range of regulatory and governance functions at NTU to ensure the institution provides high-quality, robust education to its students.

Our role is to offer advice and assurance to the institution and ensure that robust and high standards in Academic Development and Academic Quality are being met. Our responsibilities broadly cover the following areas.

Institutional Level

This support can be in the form of:

  • assuring NTU’s Academic Board and Board of Governors for academic standards;
  • acting as the executive functions for sub-committees of Academic Board, such as the Academic Standards and Quality Committee; and,
  • managing and reviewing academic policy, primarily the Quality Handbook

School Level

In addition to the institutional Governance support we provide above; we also support Schools in the management of quality and standards and ensure that processes are fit for purpose. This support can range from:

  • School Academic Standards and Quality Committees; and,
  • Periodic Reviews.

Collaborative Partners

We hold oversight of the standards and quality with our Collaborative Partners for the courses that we accredit. We do this because we are the institution that confers the educational award and, as such, must adhere to NTU policies and standards.
