– Senior management has been strengthened by establishing the posts of Academic Dean and the Head of Quality Assurance and Enhancement.
– There is a well-structured set of procedures in place for the recruitment, selection and admission of students.
– The improved monitoring of student data has enabled staff to provide added learning support where difficulties are noted.
