Book now for That's Quality! 2024

Our annual That's Quality! programme for student officers and students’ association staff is open for bookings!

The 2024 event is split into three parts:

  • The first part of That’s Quality! is a half-day, sector-specific online event.
  • The second part will be an online self-study module, which will provide officers with a more detailed overview of quality in Scotland and is designed to be used throughout an officer’s time in office.
  • Finally, attendees of both events will be invited to a joint, two-day, in-person training event in August. The two-day event will be residential, with a dinner on the first evening, allowing for social and networking opportunities.

This final joint event will be an opportunity for interactive group activities which will allow attendees to explore what they have learnt in practice and to network with colleagues from across the tertiary sector.

This is a three-part training course and attendees are required to attend both the online session and the joint event, as well as completing the self-study module.

The hashtag for the event is #sparqsTQ


That’s Quality! is aimed at new and returning student officers and students' association staff with an education remit. It will provide a valuable addition to your planned induction for new officers - introducing participants to the quality enhancement agenda, looking at why quality matters to students and how to use it to make change. It can form a part of wider education officer inductions, as supported in our recently updated induction toolkit for 2024-25.
