SBCS Trincity hosted Edexcel Standards Verifier, Ms. Abigail Smith on Saturday, August 23, 2014. Ms. Smith is an Educational Management professional with 10 years’ experience of managing and leading all aspects of curriculum and quality in educational settings, including implementing learning and teaching improvements, improving learner support, driving up standards of teaching skills and improving cross college student support functions at whole organisational strategic and operational levels.
The visit was part of her biannual review of the centre’s administration of the Higher National Diploma in Graphic Design programme. Involved in this exercise were meetings with the Programme Team (academic and administrative staff), interviews with a random sample of students of her choosing and of course, critique of learners’ Art & Design pieces and the centre’s policies governing the administration of the programme.
This visit has been her third in the past two (2) years and has proven to be very insightful, with Ms. Smith commending SBCS on existing procedures in practice, and also making recommendations towards enhancing our delivery of the programme.
We thank our lecturers and learners who gave of their time and shared their experiences on the HND programme, at this review.
