Well we have finally done it and managed to close the year with the biggest of finales! Yes the QSN 19/20 AGM and an opportunity to reflect on QSN member institutional responses to the Office for Students (OfS) consultation on quality and standards in higher education: Raising the bar
We will spend the first 30 minutes on our 2019/20 AGM following our postponed QSN Annual Conference in September this year.
The remainder of the webinar will focus on the OfS consultation. The OfS is proposing to update and toughen requirements for the minimum performance expected by the OfS from any University or other higher education provider. Numerical values for baseline requirements are yet to be published but the OfS does remind us that they are ready to use all necessary enforcement powers, where necessary, to help maintain the excellent reputation of the English higher education system.
Join us to share institutional views on the new and clearer definitions of “quality” and “standards”! Whether you wish to contribute to the QSN consultation response or simply understand current thinking across QSN member institutions to inform your own institutional response, then please attend this webinar.
The Quality Strategy Network (QSN) is planning to submit a response to the consultation on behalf of QSN members. Our survey is anonymous and we will share responses to all QSN member institutions shortly after our webinar on the 17th December.
Here’s the link to the survey. Please update as much or a little of the survey as you are able. Greater engagement with the survey will help inform the QSN response and provide helpful sector views to inform our own institutional responses.
This webinar will take place via Zoom. A link will be sent out in the joining instructions.
The delegate booking system on the website is a little clunky which should hopefully be fixed soon. You have to register your name to add a delegate (which could be yourself), complete the delegate registration information and then scroll back down the page to submit your registration.
