Education programme approval reports

Approval visits are the final part of our four-stage gateway process for approving new education programmes. This is where we check that the programmes at education institutions meet our standards and requirements.

After the visit, our external QA delivery partner, Mott MacDonald, complete a programme approval visit report.

We consider this report and decide to approve or refuse approval of the programme.

We publish programme approval visit reports on this page after we make our decision.

Visit reports: refused approval

We have refused approval of the programmes listed in the table below.

A programme can’t run until it successfully passes our programme approval process and we've confirmed in writing that it has been approved. As such, the programmes listed below can’t run until we have granted approval.

Approval reportDate of refusalTitle of programme(s)Reason for refusal
University of Bedfordshire

November 2019

Foundation degree science (FdSc) nursing associate
FdSc nursing associate practitioner (apprenticeship)

We refused the proposed programme(s) as nine conditions were set during the approval process and we allow up to five conditions for a programme to be approved.

The conditions are outlined in the report.

As there are currently students on the legacy Health Education England (HEE) Nursing Associate programme (pre-NMC standards), we have liaised with HEE over this refusal. HEE have carried out further quality assurance and provided us with robust assurance in relation to the student learning experience on the current programme.

We refused the proposed programme(s) as 12 conditions were set during the approval process and we allow up to five conditions for a programme to be approved.

The conditions are outlined in the report. 

These conditions were in relation to our new standards and future programme design, rather than highlighting any concerns about the pre-registration nursing programme currently running against our pre-2018 standards.
