That's Quality! Colleges 2019 is still open for bookings!

If you've still to register for our annual training event, That’s Quality! Colleges 2019, there's still time to book your place! The two-day residential event is taking place on Wednesday 7th and Thursday 8th of August at West Park Conference Centre in Dundee.

The event is for student officers with an education remit, students’ association staff and senior reps/executive officers.  It will provde a comprehensive introduction to national quality arrangements and procedures that help colleges ensure the best possible student experience. Participants will be encouraged to consider how best to use these arrangements and procedures in their role to identify and bring about change for their students.

The training will provide a valuable addition to your planned induction for new officers - looking at why quality matters to students and how to use it to make change.

Participants will gain an understanding of:

  • Student partnership and why it is important.
  • The role of national agencies and how they support your work.
  • The national quality arrangements that assure the quality of colleges in Scotland.
  • Different developments in the sector and how you can engage with these to improve your students’ learning experience.

Please note that That’s Quality! participants must complete a short online training module prior to the event. The online module provides essential background information and thus successful participation in the face-to-face training is dependent on its completion. A link to the module will be sent to registered attendees in advance of the event.

As the event is residential, there is a cost to delegates for dinner, bed and breakfast, provided at West Park Dundee at a cost of £63.95 per delegate. sparqs will cover all the other costs associated with the training event, e.g. meeting rooms and catering. If you cannot attend, you are permitted to send an alternate from your institution. Please note that we reserve the right to charge the full fee if you should cancel, as detailed on the event page.
