CEE Network Steering Committee member Todor Shopov and Secretary General Christina Rozsnyai are part of the project group. The Quality Procedures Project “Visions for the Future” aims to map good practice in external quality assurance via a survey to all ENQA and CEE Network member agencies. The project is to be completed in February 2012.
The proposed survey is divided into two parts. The aim of the first part is to obtain a general picture of what is happening about external QA procedures. The second part of the questionnaire tries to identify individual good practices (implemented or expected to be applied in the near future). This second part of the survey will help ENQA in mapping developed/advanced procedures.
Survey responses we will have a chance to directly feed into the ENQA statement to the Ministers in 2012.
