The CLD Standards Council for Scotland is delighted to announce that following an approval visit to University of West of Scotland on 20 April 2016 the following programmes have been granted approval:

  2. Post Graduate Certificate approved for 3 year period.

Overall it was very clear to the panel involved in the visit that much has developed and improved since the original approval in 2012.   This was further evidenced by the positive and unanimous response to the question of whether students would recommend the programme to others.  It is clear that students feel supported by the staff team. Great work!

The panel were also encouraged by the creative approach to assessment e.g. capstone project. It was also heartening to see the evidence of support and use of i-develop, registration as a member of CLD Standards Council for Scotland and CLD competences.

Well done to University of West of Scotland and a big thanks for all the hard work.
