That's Quality! Colleges 2018


West Park Conference Centre
319 Perth Road
Tel: 01382 647171


Following student feedback, as a pilot this year, we are extending our residential training event from one to two days.

This event will provide a comprehensive introduction to national arrangements and procedures that help colleges ensure the best possible learning experience for their students. Participants will be supported to consider how best to use these arrangements and procedures in their roles in order to identify and bring about change for their students.

This training is a valuable part of induction for newly elected student officers and will provide the opportunity to network and work with fellow student officers and students’ association staff.


By the end of the event, participants will understand –

  • Student partnership and why it is important.
  • The external policy and quality landscape in which colleges and students’ associations operate.
  • How to use quality procedures and mechanisms and what you need to do in your college to improve your students’ learning experience.
  • How to engage wider groups of students in quality at your college.

A full agenda will be available in due course.

The event hashtag, for use on Twitter, is #TQ18college


This training event is aimed at college student officers and students’ association staff.

Event costs and terms and conditions

The cost of this event is £75.54 per delegate. This is to cover dinner, bed and breakfast, as charged by the venue. sparqs will cover all the other event costs, e.g. meeting rooms and catering. While we have made every effort to ensure best value for money when booking this event, this has been constrained by availability at a very busy time of year.

If you book a place but are later unable to attend, you are permitted to send an alternate from your institution. Unfortunately we are unable to offer refunds once the accommodation has been confirmed with the venue, unless the costs can be covered, e.g. if there is a waiting list. We will make every effort to try and fill any such places, but cannot guarantee this.


The first day of the course will begin at 10.30am (registration and refreshments from 10.00am) and the second day will finish by 4.00pm.
