Approval given to the AQU Catalunya Strategic Plan for 2009-2012

The Board of Management has given its approval to the AQU Catalunya Strategic Plan for 2009-2012, the purpose of which is to enhance the running of the Agency in line with the objectives set out in the Catalan Universities Act/LUC (the continuous enhancement of quality in university education) and the European standards and recommendations, and to meet the growing demand for review and evaluation created by the setting up of the EHEA.

The Plan defines the mission and values of AQU Catalunya, and it establishes eight strategic themes to direct action by the Agency: management and organisation, academic staff assessment, institutional and programme review, analysis of the higher education system, communication, people, external relations and students.

This Plan deals, amongst other things, with the following objectives:

  • To reinforce the core activities, which take in the entire university system, in relation to both review processes and case studies; 
  • To develop processes for the monitoring of quality in the university system, which are currently insufficient;
  • To intensify institutional review processes for the more consistent handling of internal and external quality assurance mechanisms for the programmes and services offered by universities, and
  • The internal and external quality assurance of the programmes and services offered by universities, and the development of more integrated models for academic staff assessment.
