The work of GLT encompasses all of the key institutional and local-level quality and standards activities.

As part of its activities, Greenwich Learning and Teaching (GLT) supports academic staff in the Faculties to enhance the quality of learning and teaching. The Quality Leads and Officers work in partnership with academic and professional services staff across the University to support academic staff in developing, approving, enhancing modules and programmes and maintaining academic standards across the University's awards.
