The Center for Learning Innovations and Customized Knowledge Solutions (CLICKS) in collaboration with the Quality Assurance Agency in the UK has just concluded a two day workshop titled “Building a Sustainable Quality Culture: From Internal QA to External Accreditation” which took place on the 4th and 5th of March, 2019 at the University of Sadat City in Egypt as part of its agenda to support the quality movement across the Arab Region.
The workshop addressed the key strategies and approaches to develop and sustain a quality culture and how to establish integrated internal quality systems that are aligned with institution’s specific strategies and culture whilst supporting the achievement of external QA requirements (accreditation) both nationally and internationally. Special focus on the QA of academic programs was at the core of the program. The workshop in addition explored the ESG standards and placed emphasis on the QAA validation process for institutions outside of the UK.
Over 25 participants representing various Higher Education Institutions in Egypt were present to the program and shared their insights and experiences on the development of internal quality assurance.
This workshop is part of a series of workshops CLICKS and QAA are organizing across different countries to contribute to capacity building in the Arab region in the area of quality assurance and accreditation.
