The institution had various goals when it formed this partnership:
- Increase student enrolment
- Develop standards and consistency for online programmes to facilitate scaling their delivery
- Become fit for the future in terms of technology and resourcing
- Grow the revenue from online courses
By working collaboratively and drawing on the strengths of each organisation, the partnership is successfully working towards these goals. Northumbria University’s teaching teams bring academic skills and unique subject matter expertise to each programme, while Pearson provides the experience of developing, scaling and supporting online provision.
