Vision, Mission & Objectives

A Centre of Excellence in Tertiary Education Quality Assurance with a strong membership base that influences Tertiary Education in the Caribbean!

Programme for Quality Assurance Professionals

With the massive expansion of higher/tertiary education and diversification of providers over the past decade, external quality assurance agencies (EQAAs) are being confronted with challenges such as cross border education, bogus tertiary institutions, accreditation mills and the increasing demand for recognition of institutions, progammes and qualifications. As a consequence, EAAAs must ensure that their systems are robust in order to protect the interest of the public. Within and outside the Caribbean, the field of quality assurance is still a relatively new area of focus and as a consequence, the International Network for Quality Assurance Agencies in Higher Education (INQAAHE) is collaborating with two recognized tertiary institutions, namely: New York University, USA and the LH Martin Institute, University of Melbourne, Australia to offer a Graduate Certificate in Quality Assurance. In addition, since there is little education and training for the QA profession and professionals, INQAAHE has created course materials, through the expertise of its membership, aimed at filling this skill gap.

Both programmes for QA professionals can be found on INQAAHE’s website at the following links:
