Template for Approval of New Programs
This tool carries a mechanism that enables users to design and/or update VET programmes to better address current and future student and labor market needs, thereby providing stakeholders with the most recent information on market developments and requirements. This tool is therefore to be used as a template for the creation of the proposal of a new programme or the updating of an existing one. Most of the sections require the user to describe the new programme/update at length, including detailed information on separate sheets and attaching them to this form to compile the report.
The salient reason for this is the integration of identification of training needs within the design, development and approval process of programmes, as well as during the cyclical review process. As per college policy and procedure, the design, development and approval of new accredited programmes and the review of existing programmes are key processes of any educational institution. Interested parties/proposers need to submit a form that indicates key information that is required to be submitted in the proposal. This includes Internal and external stakeholder feedback from, for example, students, alumni, industry, employers, NGOs, etc… This process involves collaboration between various offices/departments within the institution to ensure that the programme being developed is of the best quality and suitable for the needs of the target audience. .
The intention of this tool is to create different platforms whereby key stakeholders in education and training work together to develop programmes that are relevant and sustainable and that recognize the input from industry.
Stakeholders including academics, students and those hailing from industry and NGOs, etc., are asked to provide feedback on the level of the programme, content, learning outcomes, delivery approach, relevance and other general comments. This data is to be consolidated input for subsequent programme development and review.
