Save the dates for our 2024 That’s Quality! event

We are pleased to announce the confirmed dates for our 2024 annual induction event for student officers and students’ association staff, That’s Quality!

The event will once again be split into three parts:

  • The first part of That’s Quality! is a half-day, sector-specific online event in July
  • 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, both college and university attendees will be invited to a joint, two-day, in-person training event in August. The two-day event will be residential at Queen Margaret University, with a dinner on the first evening, allowing for social and networking opportunities.

The joint residential 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 complete the self-study module and attend both the online session and the joint residential event.

The hashtag for the event, for use on Twitter, is #sparqsTQ
