  • To be willing to engage with the pilot project from April to December 2019;   
  • To allow the named contact to attend project group meetings (approximately 1 meeting per term) which will be held across England; expenses will need to be met by the institution; 
  • To trial the pilot quality mark framework within their institution, by monitoring progress and providing regular progress reports to NNECL and the consultant; 
