The Project’s Outputs
What we have developed:
The HEALINT Protocol contains criteria to ensure that when a student requires an international placement, the home organisation will be able to check and assure the quality of the placement offered by a host, despite differences in national regulations.
The protocol safeguards the credibility of the audits undertaken, by ensuring the auditors are independent and meet rigorous requirements in interpreting what they see when making their review and by harmonising audit practice across countries.
This output makes provision for the evaluation of the tool, identifying metrics which determine whether the conclusions drawn from the initial audit can be predictive of high quality placement learning environments.
The Transferability Strategy targeted decision makers in Higher Education as a whole and globally, with the aim of facilitating their own introduction of similar schemes. BSI and ISO were key associate partners to achieve this.
