Good practice case studies

Following a successful pilot in June 2017, our Good Practice Case Study Programme is now a regular feature of our subscription service. The programme provides an opportunity for subscribing institutions to showcase good practice and innovative approaches to quality assurance and enhancement.

Case studies are peer reviewed by a panel of experienced QAA reviewers and sector experts. The panel identifies the case studies it feels to be of particular merit and benefit to the sector, and these are published in our online Subscriber Community.
