To provide a framework whereby the Institute is equipped with independent academic advice, HELI’s Board of Directors delegates the academic governance of the Institute to the Academic Board. The Academic Board comprises academic staff from other higher education providers, tertiary education practitioners, members of the Institute’s academic staff and a representative of the Institute’s alumni.
The Academic Board operates independently of the ownership and management of the Institute to assure the academic integrity of the Institute’s courses.
The Academic Board has responsibility for academic policymaking, academic administration and oversight of the educational processes. This ensures that the Academic Board maintains appropriate control over the administration of the curriculum to allow educational objectives to be achieved. The Academic Board is chaired by one of its independent members.
