The unit review process is designed to improve the quality and standards of our units that sit outside of qualifications.

It ensures that all unit content is current, relevant and fit for purpose.

The Process

The review process consists of three phases:

Consultation Phase

Evaluation Phase

Publication of Results

Units have been allocated to cohorts and have been scheduled for review. When a review cohort is in consultation then centres and other stakeholders are invited to comment on the content of the units. Centres will be made aware of the specific units on their framework that sit within cohorts under consultation. 

Colour Codes

Each unit is colour coded to identify the phase or outcome of review.

  • YELLOW: in consultation or evaluation                  
  • RED:  to be expired
  • GREEN: approved

If a unit is not colour coded, it is part of a future cohort to be reviewed.


APPROVE: The unit has been deemed by one or more centres as being fit for purpose, current and the content appropriate for the level and credit.
EXPIRE: Not fit for purpose. The unit has been deemed not fit for purpose - the reason for this will be displayed in the comments. It will be stated if a new unit is being developed to replace it.
