The Valencian Agency for Assessment and Prospective is already a member of ENQA (European Association of Quality Assurance Agencies).
The week of June 21-25, AVAP’s CEO, Javier Oliver, attended the ENQA Annual Members Forum in Cardiff. Until this date, since 2016 AVAP has been an agency affiliated with the European Association of Quality Assurance Agencies.
AVAP is immersed in the process of internationalization of the agency and, in this way, as a priority objective to become part of EQAR, the official register of Quality Assurance Agencies that comply with European standards. During this process, AVAP has had the visit of a panel of ENQA experts who have evaluated different aspects of the Agency to determine if AVAP complies with the criteria and guidelines for quality assurance in the European Higher Education Area (ESG), requirements that prove their entry into EQAR. After this visit, a provisional report has been issued in which it has been reflected that AVAP is on the right track and is working to achieve its objective.
The first step to achieve internationalization was to become a member of ENQA. After this Forum, held in Cardiff, AVAP has managed to become a member of the European Association of ENQA agencies.
What does it mean to be a member of ENQA?
ENQA members are higher education quality assurance agencies based in the European Higher Education Area. To become a member of ENQA, agencies must demonstrate their compliance with the EHEA Standards and Guidelines for Quality Assurance (ESG). With its entry, AVAP adds one more agency to the nearly 50 that are already part of ENQA
