Partnerships and Oversight
Throughout its history, Leo Baeck College has had a number of collaborations with different academic bodies.
Its awards have been validated amongst others by the Council for National Academic Awards (CNAA), the Open University Validation Services (OUVS), the Institute of Education (IOE) and the University of Winchester (UoW).
From 2015-16 Leo Baeck College formed a new partnership arrangement with Middlesex University which validates all the Jewish Studies and Jewish Education awards. The degrees carry the imprimatur of Middlesex University.
Leo Baeck College and Middlesex University hope that with time further opportunities to deepen the collaboration through joint grant applications to research councils and the development of synergies in areas such as Law, Sociology, Cultural Studies and Interfaith Studies may be available. Staff at LBC are currently invited to attend Middlesex University’s Perspective in Religious Studies research programme.
Quality Assurance Agency
Leo Baeck College also has educational oversight from the Quality Assurance Agency.
In 2012 the date of our latest Review, the QAA reached the following judgements about LBC’s standards and quality:
- It has confidence in the College’s management of academic standards for which it is responsible
- It has confidence in the College’s management and enhancement of the quality of learning opportunities
- Reliance can be placed on the accuracy and completeness of the information that the College is responsible for publishing about itself and the programmes it delivers.
