ESQA

EURASHE is a partner in the ESQA (Effective involvement of Stakeholders in external Quality Assurance activities) project.

Underneath are further information on:


The ESQA project aims to support the activity of the Peer Group C on stakeholders’ involvement in external quality assurance (EQA). It will explore various categories of stakeholder engagement and expectations stakeholders have towards EQA with the aim to make this engagement effective and diversified. Recommendations will be provided to the national authorities and QA agencies in terms of stakeholders’ involvement, regarding ways to strengthen dialogue and cooperation, as well for their effective involvement in QA processes. A Study and a Guideline on stakeholders’ involvement will be developed, and respectively peer-learning activities will be organised with the participation of the TPG C on QA members.

The consortium will mainly address the stakeholders’ involvement at the level of external quality assurance activities, aiming to find ways to deepen and make more effective their involvement at EHEA member countries level, according to ESG 2015. As external and internal quality assurance processes are interlinked, the involvement of stakeholders will be analysed in a holistic manner
