ENQA is very pleased to announce the launch of a new initiative open to its members and affiliates – the ENQA Leadership Programme! The programme is designed to provide an intensive European peer-learning experience for high-potential mid-level to early-senior professional staff at QA agencies to develop their understanding of the European QA framework as well as of the leadership skills required for working effectively as team leaders within agencies, in reviews, and with external stakeholders.
The programme consists of three two-day seminars:
- Seminar One at AEQES in Brussels, 16 – 18 May: “Trends and developments in (European) higher education”;
- Seminar Two at AAQ in Bern, 10 – 12 September: “Leadership and higher education”;
- Seminar Three in the week of 5-9 November (place and exact dates TBC): “Formal and informal leadership in Quality Assurance Agencies”.
The ENQA Board has contracted the Center for Higher Education Policy Studies (CHEPS), University of Twente, the Netherlands to be the programme leaders. CHEPS is one of Europe’s leading higher education research centres and has two-decades of experience in higher education leadership development, including running an annual leadership development programme for the European Consortium of Innovative Universities (ECIU) since 2006.
