The Barbados Accreditation Council (BAC) will be hosting the Preparing for Programme Approval workshop on Tuesday, October 29, 2013 from 8:30a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at the Radisson Aquatica Resort Barbados, Aquatic Gap, St. Michael.

This whole day workshop is targeted at educational providers that offer post secondary/tertiary education and training in Barbados.

The training objectives of the workshop are as follows:

1. To orient participants to the Programme Approval process;
2. To equip participants with the skills and expertise to accurately complete the application for programme approval;
3. To assist participants in developing a programme specifications document; and
4. To enhance the quality of the educational provisions

Programme Approval is a quality assurance process which ensures that a programme is appropriately designed and structured; adequately resourced; consistent with the provider’s mission; and has stated learning outcomes and assessment strategies that are set at an appropriate level for the qualification awarded.

Post-secondary/tertiary educational providers are encouraged to register for the workshop as programme approval provides the foundation for programme accreditation and also signals the provider’s commitment to quality tertiary educational provision.

The registration forms and other details are available on the BAC website at www.bac.gov.bb. Interested persons may also contact BAC via email at info@bac.gov.bb or by telephone at (246) 436-9094 for more information.
