QAA Scotland carries out a variety of work through our Enhancement and Development projects. These projects explore topics which are of current interest to the Scottish HE sector. The Scottish Higher Education Enhancement Committee (SHEEC) agrees and decides the scope and area of the projects, which are then used to support ongoing work in institutions. Projects usually cover topics which are not explored by Focus On projects or Enhancement Theme work.
