Completing the Programme
Evaluation Document (PED)
Using the Academic Quality
Assurance System (AQAS)
An overview
• Programmes have already been
gathered into clusters, approved
by Academic Quality (clusters
cannot be changed for the
2012/13 review cycle)
• The new APM template, the
Programme Evaluation Document
(PED) can be accessed directly
from AQAS
• Cluster leaders (allocated by
Faculties) are responsible for
completing the PED
• AQAS enables electronic access
to all the programmes/module
reviews for a cluster
• AQAS links directly to cluster level
statistics and allows drilling down
to programme statistics
• You can also save supporting
documentation e.g. programme
management committee minutes
• Faculties will make local
arrangements for PED approval
before it is reviewed by the
Faculty Review and Approvals Sub
Committee (FRASC)
• If you find errors contact your
Quality Support Manager (QSM)
• Faculty Directors for Reviews and
Approvals will also provide
The Role of the Cluster Leader
• The Cluster Leader will be
responsible for uploading
the completed PED to
• A Cluster Leader is a role
allocated for the purposes
of APM. In some Faculties it
may be a Programme
Leader but this will not
always be the case
• Given that a number of
programmes are usually
included in one cluster, the
Cluster Leader will need to
determine a process that
will enable the collection of
relevant information from
each programme.
• Where a cluster includes
collaborative provision, the
Cluster Leader must ensure
that the partner has been
involved in completion of
the PED.
