The national programme of Enhancement Themes is led by the Scottish Higher Education Enhancement Committee (SHEEC) and managed by QAA Scotland. It aims to improve the learning experience of students studying within the Scottish higher education sector.


This is achieved by the sector identifying and agreeing to work on specific areas (known as Themes). Within each Theme, institutions, academic staff, support staff and students are encouraged to work together to generate ideas and find innovative ways to enhance the learning experience of students. Each Theme allows the sector to share and learn from current and innovative national and international practice.


All institutions actively contribute to the Enhancement Themes and benefit from them by supporting enhancement within their own institutions.
