2.2.1 The role of the PDT is to provide a forum through which the design of a new (or re-validated) programme may be informed by a range of expertise from within and – crucially - external to the University, so as to meet sector expectations and the University’s criteria for approval. The PDT is responsible for ensuring that appropriate consultation takes place, and for the preparation of the programme documentation to an appropriate standard for submission to an approval panel.
2.2.2 The PDT must work with relevant colleagues in the Faculty and Directorates to ensure that the new or re-validated programme:

2.2.3 In order to ensure that these tasks are effectively completed, the PDT membership must include:
NOTE: The PL(QA), or equivalent, and the Associate Dean (Student Experience) may also wish to attend PDT meetings in order to assure themselves that the PDT is adhering to agreed deadlines for consultation and development, and that the documentation is being prepared to an appropriate standard. They should, as a minimum, be treated as members of the PDT in respect of circulation of documents, agendas and action points, but may choose to maintain an overview of progress via regular updates from the PDT Chair rather than attendance at meetings.
2.2.4 In order to avoid excessive pressure on staff workloads, it is not necessary for all members to attend every meeting of the PDT. However, members must attend meetings at which their expertise is required in order to progress the business of the PDT - the agenda of each meeting must therefore be provided to all members in sufficient time to enable the appropriate personnel to make arrangements to attend.
