The GTA University Centre’s partnership agreement with Bournemouth University has been endorsed for another year.
At a recent meeting, held in Guernsey, the dean of Bournemouth’s business school, Professor Roger Palmer, said that the centre continued to provide quality tuition in a number of areas and the University was very pleased to continue its association.
“The partnership review is essentially an audit and assessment of the organisations that deliver courses under our banner,” said Mr Palmer.
“The GTA University Centre maintains the highest standards expected of a higher education institution and those required to receive the endorsement of Bournemouth University.
“The support of local industry is also important as it shows that the centre is delivering an offering that is relevant and useful to industry.”
David Leafe, chairman of the GTA University Centre, said the acknowledgement was a credit to its staff, tutors and students.
“Our association with Bournemouth University is very important to the island. We are a small organisation, and working closely with a highly ranked university gives us access to the resources and teaching provision of a much larger international business school.
“It is reassuring for our students to know that they are receiving input from specialists in topics such as corporate governance, commercial law and people management.”
The assessment is conducted on an annual basis and includes a rigorous review of the GTA’s facilities, procedures and policies in delivering of higher education in the island.
