Would you like to strengthen your organisation's quality assurance processes or would you like to have a partner who can think along with you about your organisation's policies? With our experience and expertise VLUHR QA is a strong partner for your project.
VLUHR QA offers support to higher education institutions that need to go through an institutional review. This support can be situated within one or more phases and/or aspects of the process.
We can help you gather relevant information, prepare your staff for the site visit or organise focus discussions with your stakeholders. We can set up a trial audit, carried out by an independent and expert panel that highlights a theme of your choice. Or we can help design actions that build on with the results of the institutional review and contribute to your organisation's strategy with regard to the quality of your education or training.
It goes without saying that we tailor our offer as much as possible to your demands and ambitions; starting from the perspective of a 'critical friend' and in line with the accreditation requirements.
Programme reviews 'in eigen regie'
As a partner, VLUHR QA helps you develop, implement or evaluate your system of programme reviews 'in eigen regie'. We can carry out certain tasks and/or roles within your own system of quality monitoring and/or improvement. Depending on your goals, we look for tailor-made solutions, in co-creation.
For example, we can advise you in optimizing your QA system or help you collect, process and analyse information about the quality of your education and training by means of a document study or in-depth interviews. We support you in selecting and training panels in order to reduce your planning burden, or help you to map the results of your QA system n order to increase the effectiveness of your organisation.
We act as secretary of a programme review. We have extensive experience and expertise in writing reports that give you a clear and concise picture of the quality of your education or training, while respecting the uniqueness of your institution.
Education and QA policy
VLUHR QA is happy to think together with you about further strengthening your educational and quality assurance policies. We pay attention to create support within your organisation and the needs and wishes of your staff.
We can advise you on institution-wide policy directions, but also on the design of a survey plan or an educational concept. We can support you in drawing up a governance structure or a professionalisation policy. We conduct interviews with your stakeholders, map your organisation's challenges, detect best practices or define KPIs together with you.
We can support your organisation with the reorganisation of your education and training, or give you advice on the preparation of a macro-efficiency dossier or an initial accreditation. Together, as partners, we define the modalities of the project.
