The 7th ENQA Training of Agency Reviewers took place on 20-21 September 2012 in Mannheim, Germany. The training session was organised by ENQA and hosted by the Evaluation Agency Baden-Wuerttemberg (evalag).
The experience on the use of the ENQA membership criteria in the external reviews of ENQA member agencies gained over the last years, and the parallel use of the European Standards and guidelines (ESG) as the criteria for EQAR listing, emphasise the importance of experts being well prepared for the agency reviews. Based on the lessons learned, feedback and materials from the already completed reviews, the training sessions 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 experts. The training is aimed both for experts who have already been involved in national or ENQA coordinated reviews, and for potential future reviewers.
The training is part of the ProENQA project and supported by the Lifelong Learning Programme of the European Commission.
