HE Bulletin - Spring 2021

Implementation of Revised Engineering Council Standards

Published: 17/04/2021

cover of AHEPFollowing publication of The Accreditation of Higher Education Programmes (AHEP) 4.0 HE providers can request accreditation against the old or new learning outcomes for accreditation visits held before September 2024.  

Guidance is being developed to support The Approval and Accreditation of Qualifications and Apprenticeships (AAQA), the new Engineering Council Standard against which apprenticeships (including Degree Apprenticeships and Graduate Apprenticeships) and non-degree qualifications can be recognised. AAQA supports the formal recognition of competence, as well as knowledge and understanding, developed through non-degree qualifications and apprenticeships. For higher level programmes this refers to the same learning outcomes as degree accreditation.
