During a meeting of the Spanish Network of University Quality Assurance Agencies REACU, it was decided to draw up joint reports that respond to the guidelines established for ESG standard 3.4 (Thematic analysis). These are structured analyses of the situation of the university system in specific areas showing the evolution, trends, good practices and areas for improvement, with the aim of providing information to the universities themselves, public administrations and social agents for decision-making.
AVAP has been participating for some months now, together with other Spanish quality agencies, in thematic monographic sessions that show the main conclusions of the results of the accreditation reports of the different degrees linked to a specific subject and the employers’ perspective on their labour market insertion.
Thematic analysis are studies that go beyond accreditations or certifications, and are carried out by the agencies on the basis of the data or results obtained in their evaluations. This is one of the areas of activity that the agency wants to promote, as it was during the year 2021 that it began to participate in this type of initiative. Based on the latest agreements adopted, joint progress is expected by 2022.
AVAP has had the opportunity to participate in the following thematic analysis:
- WEBINAR Nursing studies: We have provided the results obtained through our accreditation processes in the field of nursing.
- WEBINAR University studies in journalism and audiovisual communication: We have contributed the results obtained through our accreditation processes in the field of journalism. AVAP participated in the conclusions and closing of the event.
AVAP is aware of the need to go deeper into this type of foresight projects and intends to continue its participation in thematic analysis programmes as part of the necessary improvement in this field. The next WEBINAR Master’s degree in teacher training for compulsory secondary education and baccalaureate, vocational training and language teaching (MUFP).will take place on 27 January 2022 and Javier Oliver, Director of the Agency, will participate as a speaker.
