  • good practice in student engagement in quality assurance
  • effective quality assurance of collaborative provision
  • subject benchmark statements.

We provide:

  • consultancy and advice on quality assurance for institutions in higher and further education
  • training and consultancy for overseas universities and agencies
  • auditing quality processes for the private sector and for professional, statutory and regulatory bodies
  • presentations and workshops on quality in education-related issues facing your institution
  • conferences on quality matters
  • continuing professional development and study tours
