Approval and Accreditation Board

The Approval and Accreditation Board (AAB) was established in September 2004 to oversee the approval and accreditation activity undertaken by the organisation. The Board develops policies and oversee and advise on all aspects of approval and accreditation of programmes, individuals and departments.

The AAB formulates the future strategic direction for approval and accreditation for consideration by the Society and College of Radiographers (SCoR) and provides advice and guidance and makes recommendations to UK Council and the College Board of Trustees (CBoT) on all matters related to the SCoR approval and accreditation policy and its objectives.

Approval of education programmes

Before an education programme can be approved by the College of Radiographers the Assessor's report must be presented to the AAB.  Following the board's agreement the College Board of Trustees (CBoT) will review and ratify the approval.  Education providers will be notified following CBoT approval.  Dates of upcoming AAB and CBoT boards are below.  All final reports and responses from education providers and Assessors must be received at least 3 weeks prior to the AAB, as shown in brackets, in order to be considered.  Reports received after the deadline will be presented at the next Board meeting.

The Approval and Accreditation Board Annual Report

The Approval and Accreditation Board (AAB) publishes an annual report which draws into a single commentary the approval and accreditation activity over the previous academic year, providing a national overview of the nature and scope of education provision. The report is recognised as the most authoritative record of student recruitment, retention and completion. 

Comprehensive data and statistical information on the current and future workforce is provided where collection of data has been possible. 

The report demonstrates how the AAB continues to accomplish a significant amount of progress in the development of policy and overseeing and advising on all aspects of the approval and accreditation of courses and individuals to ensure consistency of approach and standards.

The latest annual report can be downloaded to the right, in the other related content section.
