Thematic Analysis 'Programme Reviews in Flanders (2020-2023)'

VLUHR QA has been using a new methodology for programme reviews since 2020. We made an analysis of the reviews conducted by VLUHR QA within the current quality assurance system, based on seven review reports published between May 2021 and May 2023.

Through the analysis, we sought to answer two broad research questions:

  1. How is the VLUHR QA Manual for Programme Review (2020) put into practice? What evidence do the review reports provide on the review principles underpinning the holistic final assessment?
  2. Are there any common elements discernible in the review reports? Are there certain good practices and/or areas of improvement that link the different programmes and institutions?

Based on this analysis, VLUHR QA aims not only to strengthen its internal quality assurance, but also to gain knowledge and deeper insight into the Flemish educational landscape within which it conducts its activities.
