  • It is expected that each of the required competency areas will be coordinated by a specialist academic staff member.
  • Effective policies and procedures governing employee recruitment, performance appraisal and development must be implemented.

Evidence

  • A list of academic staff which includes their current qualifications and any further qualifications that they are working towards and the discipline area in which they teach or co-ordinate.
  • A copy of the provider’s policies on employee recruitment, performance appraisal and development.
