The Staff Mobility project facilitates peer support to the countries in the Bologna Peer Support Group on Quality Assurance. The mobility system supports professional development by offering a work placement in another country to staff members working in the field of quality assurance (QA) in higher education (HE) within national authorities (ministries), QA agencies and/or stakeholder organisations.
The call for applications for staff mobility is now open and will close on 31 August 2019. A matchmaking committee will review the applications and match the staff members based on thematic interest and geographical spread. The matchmaking committee is composed of the co-chairs of the Bologna peer group on QA and two external experts of related stakeholder organisations ENQA and EQAR.
After the staff exchanges, the committee will review the observation reports written by the mobile staff members in order to disseminate lessons learnt to all members of the Bologna Peer Support Group on Quality Assurance. It is expected that the individual staff mobilities are steps to move further towards a full implementation of the Standards and Guidelines for Quality Assurance in the European Higher Education Area (ESG) in each participating country.
The Staff Mobility project is a 2-year project co-funded by Erasmus+ KA3 Support to Policy reform “Support to the implementation of EHEA reforms – 2018-2020” and related to the work of the Bologna Peer Support Group on Quality Assurance (BPSG QA). The project is led by the Ministry of Education and Training of Belgium/Flemish Community in collaboration with The National Center for Educational Quality Enhancement in Georgia and the Ministry of Education and Culture in Cyprus.
