From the 11th - 15th of May, the Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education (QAA) will hold their fourth International Quality Assurance Programme (IQAP) for Quality Managers from non-UK institutions who would like to learn more about quality assurance in the UK and other countries. Participants will be able to benefit from expert input as well as sharing experience with other international delegates.
A popular course, the previous IQAP attracted delegates from Ethiopia, Saudi Arabia, Oman, Malaysia, Kuwait, Brunei, Zambia, France, Pakistan, Greece, Sri Lanka, Fiji and UAE.
Registration for this five-day intensive course is now open, with the QAA providing:
- high quality presentations by leaders and experts in UK higher education quality improvement
- comprehensive study materials
- visits to institutions, awarding bodies or other organisations for delegates to learn more about higher education quality in practice
- pre-departure briefing information
- a networking event including UK collaborative partners
- lunch and refreshments on each of the five days of the programme
- assistance with finding accommodation
- a certificate of attendance signed by Anthony McClaran (Chief Executive of the QAA)
Delivered in the UK at the QAA's offices in central London, delegates are likely to have at least four years' management experience, ideally within higher education, work in a management or leadership role with a responsibility for quality improvement, or are looking for an opportunity to develop their knowledge of quality improvement practice within the higher education sector.
Details for the May 2015 programme will be announced shortly and further information, including how to apply for a place and the fees involved, can be found on the QAA website - http://www.qaa.ac.uk/newsroom/events/international-quality-assurance-programme-summer-2015
Early application is recommended to avoid disappointment as the programme is limited to 25 delegates.
