Reasons for extraordinary reviews
We carry out additional quality assurance work when we believe nursing and midwifery education providers are not meeting our standards.
It might be necessary for us to carry out an extraordinary review of an education provider in certain circumstances. For example, when there is an adverse incident that presents a risk to public protection, or if an approved education institution (AEI) is seen to be either unaware of the incident or not to have effectively managed the risks. We would organise an unplanned monitoring review visit, usually at short notice.
The focus of the extraordinary review is stated to the AEI. The review team will have a specific plan for their quality assurance activity in academic and practice placement learning settings.
Below is a list of the extraordinary reviews that we have carried out with the reports attached:
