That's Quality! Colleges 2019


Our annual event to equip participants with the knowledge and ability to use the quality enhancement agenda to deliver change for their students’ learning and teaching experience.


Through That’s Quality! training (which is comprised of the face-to-face training event and compulsory online module) participants 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.

Participants were required to complete a short online training module prior to the event. The online module provided essential background information to enable successful participation in the face-to-face training days.

The materials from the days can be accessed below: 

The event hashtag, for use on Twitter, was #TQ19college
