Regional Teaching Partnerships - Policies, Procedures and Guidance  

There are a number of policy, procedure and guidance documents which support the delegation of responsibilities as agreed for the regional teaching partnerships. Standard forms to be used in conjunction with these policies and procedures are also listed.

Please note: Any forms (e.g. Outline Planning Permission forms) must be processed through the standard College procedures for Lancaster University programmes, and not sent directly to the University.  If you need any further assistance, please contact, in the first instance, the member of staff at your college who liases with the university on such matters.
