The European Toolkit for Internal Quality Management in Competence-Based Higher Education was developed during the course of the project “Internal Quality Management: Evaluating and Improving Competence-Based Higher Education (IQM-HE)” for which ENQA was a partner. The Toolkit provides a three-step procedure for internal quality management, which can be implemented by higher education institutions (HEIs) regardless of the type of institution, country, or discipline. The three steps include 1) defining, 2) screening and 3) enhancing competences.
The Toolkit comprises a handbook and templates for workshops, questionnaires and reports as well as information materials to support the implementation process. It also provides ideas for enhancing competence-based teaching and learning at HEIs. The project incorporated expertise ranging from researchers and quality agencies to practitioners and stakeholders of HEIs, ensuring that the Toolkit is science-based, supported by quality agencies, and tested by institutions. The Toolkit can be downloaded free of charge on the project website.
