Quality Assurance (Education Audits and Evaluations)

Quality Assurance (Education Audits and Evaluations)

Sheffield Hallam University is required to adhere to professional standards and guidelines published by professional and statutory regulatory bodies (PSRB), including the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC).

In order to ensure that students and supervisors experience a high quality learning experience during all Practice Based Learning placements irrespective of location we audit our Practice Based Learning placements for compliance with legislation, standards and guidance. These standards and audits are in place to check that they will offer student’s the Practice Based Learning placement learning opportunities required to meet the approved Learning Outcomes for any given course. They include:

  • PSRB standards
  • Health and Safety legislation

Placement education audits also take account of student evaluations of their Practice Based Learning placement learning experience and feedback from providers.  All quality assurance information can be found on the Quality Assurance (Audits and Student and Practice Evaluations) Section of the Policy Library page of this website.
