Abstract The authors, staff members of the School of Computer Science at the University of Lincoln, established a toolkit for the generation of dual awards in TNE which utilises the principles of Constructive Alignment to support a quality assurance process which clearly demonstrates equivalences in programmes of study at the home and partner institutions. Using the toolkit, which is based on what the authors refer to as Synergistic Constructive Alignment, the partner institutions retain the ability to deliver localised modules and assessments which maximise the potential for enhancing the student experience without impacting upon the coherence of the host programme or on the equivalence of standards across programmes and campuses. The assurance of standards based on Synergistic Constructive Alignment has since been utilised by five other subject areas and the toolkit has been enhanced and enriched by subsequent advancements in softer quality-based practices and activities which have seen the TNE relationship flourish.
