QAA Scotland publishes Annual Report 2021-22

Date: January 30 - 2023

QAA Scotland has published its Annual Report for the 2021-22 academic year.

The report summarises the breadth of work QAA Scotland carried out across the year in providing a platform for open, collaborative and enhancement-focused discussion across the Scottish higher education sector. Highlights from the year include:

  • Completion of the ELIR 4 cycle and planning for the delivery of Phase 1 of a new external institutional quality review method, beginning in 2022-23.
  • Delivery of the second year of the Resilient Learning Communities Enhancement Themes and planning for the launch of the ‘20 Years of Enhancement’ campaign for 2022-23.
  • Hosting a hybrid International Enhancement Conference, engaging more than 400 representatives from universities and colleges in Scotland
  • Continued engagement with the Scottish Funding Council (SFC) and the tertiary education sector (universities and colleges) including sector agency partners to explore how a Tertiary Quality Framework can support all key stakeholders in the enhancement of the student learning experience.

With 2023-23 marking the 20th anniversary of the Quality Enhancement Framework in Scotland, we look forward to celebrating the transformative impact of this sector-wide commitment to quality enhancement and to working with stakeholders across the tertiary sector in the implementation of a tertiary-wide vision for quality.

The report is available via the QAA Scotland website.
