EU-based Quality Assurance System

The development and introduction of Internal Quality Assurance Systems in PC HEIs aligned with EU standards aims to:

–        Map internal quality assurance policies and processes in place in EU HEIs as a basis for the development of Quality Assurance Systems in PC HEIs;

–        Develop and adopt common criteria to quality in academic training programmes in the field of ecotourism and interpretive nature guiding (based on EU HEIs’ experience & best practices);

–        Train PC HEIs’ administrative and teaching staff in quality assurance, based on the developed Quality Assurance Systems;

–        Put the developed QAS in operation in PC HEIs in order to ensure high level of quality in NATOUR programme implementation.

 How target groups will use it and benefit from the EU-based Quality Assurance System:

Will introduce EU-based Quality Assurance Systems as a way to enable: 1) joint delivery of NATOUR programme with EU HEIs, 2) transfer of credits between PC and EU HEIs, as well as 3) joint recognition of learning outcomes and award of qualifications (certification).;

Will use the QAS as a reference tool to ensure quality of the teaching/learning process and transparency in the assessment of learning outcomes during the implementation of the NATOUR programme;

Will use it as well as way to: 1) understand what they should expect from the NATOUR programme in terms of quality of learning content, teaching/learning process, and assessment of learning outcomes, 2) understand what is expected of them to comply with the programme quality requirements and qualify for the award of a diploma;

Will benefit from the EU-based QAS, as it will provide them with an instrument for strengthening harmonization of PC higher education system with EU’s, which will spur internationalization of PC HE and intensify scientific and academic exchange.
