Surrey did not withdraw
The Smallpeice technology programme is validated by the Roehampton Institute in London. The first cohort of Smallpeice technology students only received a University of Surrey postgraduate certificate in education under the Roehampton Institute's instrument of accreditation, pending a decision to award its own Roehampton Institute PGCE from September 1994.
Quality assurance for the Smallpeice SCITT PGCE award has always been the responsibility of the institute.
