The TCC has a key role in protecting the University’s reputation through ongoing monitoring of the application of appropriate quality mechanisms to assure the student experience and student outcomes in Recognised Teaching Centres.
The TCC is also responsible for ensuring that the University’s Agreement with Recognised Teaching Centres (RTCs) appropriately defines the University’s relationship with third party institutions that are granted Recognised Centre Status.
The Terms of Reference cover the following:
- TCC’s advisory function when making recommendations about recognition status of teaching centres to the UoLW Board.
- TCC’s delegated authority to make decisions on policies that support the Teaching Centre Recognised Framework (TCRF).
- TCC’s responsibility for receiving risk reports and monitoring reports concerning the performance of Recognised Teaching Centres against the programme particular requirements applicable to RTCs, as articulated in the Agreement between the University and RTCs.
The TCC reports its recommendations regarding recognition of new entrants to the TCRF, continuing recognition status for Recognised Teaching Centres, and any changes to the scope of recognition for the Recognised Teaching Centres directly to the Board of University of London Worldwide, which is responsible for endorsing such recommendations.
All other business conducted by the UoLW is reported to the University of London Worldwide Academic Committee.
