II.2.4)Description of the procurement:

NHSBT is seeking a single university with whom to work in partnership in order to co-develop and co-deliver an MSc in Applied Transfusion and Transplantation Sciences.

The programme will be co-developed and quality-assured to ensure it is accredited appropriately. The programme needs to offer the flexibility for the students to be awarded a qualification at postgraduate certificate, diploma, as well as a full masters in accordance with the accredited requirements.

This programme will be co-delivered by NHSBT and the University so that the expertise of both organisations can be fully utilised to ensure the high-quality of the programme. The curriculum needs to be at the cutting edge of developing sciences including areas such as genetics, clinical genomics, bioinformatics and advanced cell therapies.

Work on the course content and delivery should commence in 2019. The first student enrolment should be Autumn 2020.

Regular revision of the course to ensure it is up-to-date with current practice throughout the term of the contract is required.

All students enrolling throughout the initial contract term must continue until completion of such postgraduate qualification with their planned end date (both full- and part-time).

The programme will need to attract and recruit full-time and part-time students from the UK and Internationally.

The learning delivery model proposed by the University must reflect this student cohort.

Flexible learning approaches including a blended learning model (mix of distance learning and on-site learning with a small, yet meaningful number of face to face sessions) will be considered. If the University proposes a blended learning approach, delivery will take place at an agreed location which could include NHSBT venues, the University, and, where appropriate, the student’s place of employment.

The University will be the legal entity responsible for the programme. The University must offer a fully “managed service”, meaning that it will be responsible for the whole student journey and student support services. The University will be responsible for all aspects of the quality and regulatory compliance of the programme.

The University must have have a strong pre-existing portfolio of teaching in Applied Transfusion and Transplantation Sciences, Healthcare Science or equivalent.

NHSBT will work in partnership with the University for an initial four year contract term.
