From 29-31 March 2017, a panel composed by the European Association for Quality Assurance in Higher Education (ENQA), the European network of quality assurance agencies in higher education will visit NVAO for the ENQA Review. This periodic review determines to which extent NVAO still complies with the European Standards and Guidelines in its frameworks and procedures.
During the site visit, the panel will have interviews with a large number of stakeholders in higher education in Flanders and the Netherlands. The panel will also meet teachers, students, panel members and representatives of employers from both countries.
The programme of the site visit also encompasses an open hour, on Thursday 30 March 2017, from 18.00 to 19.00 hrs, at NVAO, Parkstraat 28 in The Hague, the Netherlands. The panel offers everyone who is involved in higher education and has not taken part in the scheduled interviews the opportunity to bring forward issues that affect quality assurance in higher education in the Netherlands and Flanders and the activities of NVAO in this domain.
Those who desire to make use of the open hour are requested to get in touch with Mr. Obe de Vries, secretary of the ENQA panel, until 27 March 2017 and indicate briefly what they would like to bring to the attention of the panel.
The panel will decide on the invitation to an interview during the open hour. The interviews at the open hour are confidential. The panel will not provide information to the NVAO or any other parties on who has requested to see the panel, or who had an interview with the panel. It will take into account during the review the matters brought to its attention, but will not address individual complaints or procedures.
