The Quality Enhancement Framework (QEF) is the enhancement-led approach to quality in Scottish higher education. Collaboration and partnership are at the heart of this innovative method. The QEF supports institutions, in managing the quality of the student learning experience. It also provides public confidence in academic standards and the quality of the student experience.
The collaborative approach to the framework is very distinct and includes:
- its coherence - the design allows all elements to work together
- its emphasis on enhancement, not only quality assurance
- its focus on the whole student learning experience.
We work with our partners to deliver our contributions to the five key elements.
