Northern University has joined a 4-month project called “Capacity Building in QA of HEIs in Armenia”. The project is coordinated by the ANCA and is financed by UNESCO.
The project aims at supporting the HEIs towards the reinforcement of the internal quality assurance and preparing universities for the accreditation process. As a result, HEIs will improve their self-assessment skills and strengthen the continuous enhancement of quality culture.
During the ongoing months, there will be capacity building training for stakeholders. Then the universities will conduct a SWOT analysis. Preliminary evaluation, site visit, and enhancement report will follow.
The peculiarity of the program is that specialists from the evaluated university will be included in the expert group as external evaluators. Thus, a certain circle of specialists will be formed in each university, who have seen the activities and problems of their educational institution as external evaluators. They will be involved in further enhancement processes to review and address identified issues.
