TRAINING OF EXPERTS

Training session/workshop for experts for agency reviews – Brussels

ENQA organised the second training session/workshop for experts for agency reviews which took place on 22-23 October 2009 in Brussels, Belgium.

The experience of the use of the ESG, gained over the last years, and the functioning of EQAR show how important it is that the experts are well prepared for the agency reviews. Based on the lessons learned, feedback and materials from the already completed reviews, the training session aimed at providing experts with, among others, the necessary knowledge and guidance on the interpretation of the ENQA membership criteria/ESG. Reviewers who have attended such training sessions will be included in the ENQA pool of trained reviewers.
