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.

The UK Standing Committee for Quality Assessment expects Higher Education providers in England and Wales to publish a degree outcomes statement. The University of Greenwich's Degree Outcomes Statement is agreed with the Principals of the University's partner colleges, considered by Academic Council, and was approved by the Governing Body on 29 June 2020. It is anticipated that the statement will be updated annually.

The statement sets out the institutional degree classification profile over the past five years. It considers how assessment and marking practices and governance structures assure the standard of degrees; how the degree algorithm has changed; how learning and teaching enhancements can account for improved attainment; and risks and challenges that have been identified and how these have been managed.
