Supporting the Sector

Many aspects of learning and teaching in universities and colleges are shaped or decided at a national level by various sector agencies and their committees. We work at this level to contribute to these discussions and help students play a part in them.

There are a wide range of agencies and representative bodies for Scotland's universities and colleges, and we work closely with them all. You can find out more about them via their websites, which you can find on the bottom of our front page.

Within this section of our website you can find out about our engagement with sector meetings and how we support student engagement in them. You can also read about our work on promoting Public Information, articulation, engaging students in the university sector Enhancement Themes, and some of the other current issues in quality that we are engaging in.

You can find more about our Supporting the Sector pages in the links on the right under "This section".

sparqs' lead member of staff for Supporting the Sector is currently Eve Lewis and you are welcome to get in touch with her regarding any questions about this work.
