The quality assurance and accreditation systems of the Netherlands and Flanders feature external assessments based on the concept of peer review. The systems call on the (specific and independent) expertise of the members of audit panels or assessment panels.
In order to be able to guarantee the expertise of the members of these panels, NVAO trains the chairs, secretaries and coordinators of the panels involved in the assessment of higher education institutions or programmes.
The NVAO publishes the names of the secretaries who followed her training.
