IQA

Since its establishment ANQA has been working hard on adopting a model of its internal quality assurance that would drive its effective management. Many strategies have been adopted, put into practice to promote its effective and efficient functioning. Thus, a bottom-up approach to ANQA internal quality assurance has been opted for enabling establishment of a system that works and yields positive outcomes.

ANQA has developed a system for quality assurance that:

 ANQA has adopted an input-, process- and output-based approach to its management and quality assurance, thus, all the activities run by ANQA are broken down to 11 quality assurance processes. To manage the processes an organization tool in the form of a protocol elaborating on the targets, indicators, activity plans and quality assurance tools has been developed.

 Thus, the achievements of ANQA are analysed from the perspectives of those processes, which evolve around:

  1. Leadership and Management
  2. Accreditation Committee
  3. Institutional and Programme Accreditations
  4. Internal Quality Assurance
  5. Human Resources Management
  6. International Affairs
  7. Communication and PR
  8. Legal Affairs
  9. Secretariat
  10. Information Technologies
  11. Resources
