WUAS’ programmes are developed and monitored by the Education Board, on the one hand to be compared to a research and development department of an organisation, and on the other hand to a programme management team within a higher education institute. The Board is comprised of key WUAS staff, concerned with the development and deployment of the programmes, including the Executive Director of Education, the Vice President Academic Affairs, the Heads of School, the Assurance of Learning Manager, the Head of Operations, WUAS’ locations representatives and various members of the teaching staff, depending on the programmes being discussed/developed.
The chart below shows the structure of the Education Board. The aims of the Education Board are:
1. To develop and have accredited new Bachelor and Master degree programmes.
2. To maintain and re-develop all current Bachelor and Master degree programmes.
3. To review feedback from students, teachers, (work placement) companies, business networks and WUAS’ alumni and take action on results.
The Education Board is responsible for aligning its programmes with the professional field and requirements of the market, and interacts with the ‘outside world’ through its contact with the advisory bodies and the professional field.
