safeguarding standards and improving the quality of UK higher education

Educational Oversight Liaison Forum

The QAA Educational Oversight Liaison Forum provides an opportunity for representatives of alternative providers who have applied to QAA for educational oversight, relevant representative organisations and other interested organisations to meet QAA staff to discuss current and likely future issues affecting educational oversight.

QAA takes an interest in supporting and promoting the development of providers' capacity to manage quality and standards and to enhance the learning experience of students. We also seek to support the growth and development of higher education providers' management of quality more generally. We recognise that such development is a collective endeavour by all those associated with the provision of higher education.

The aim of the Forum is to provide for the dissemination, discussion and collection of views on matters of common interest to providers, their representative organisations and QAA and to provide an opportunity for the sharing of good practice and exchange of information.
