10TH ENQA GENERAL ASSEMBLY
The 10th ENQA General Assembly took place on October 17-18, 2019 in Yerevan, Armenia. The event was organized in cooperation with the National Centre for Professional Education Quality Assurance Foundation (ANQA).
The programme of the 10th ENQA General Assembly focused primarily on the future of higher education quality assurance and ENQA’s role to play in these future developments.
A consolidated version of the ENQA Strategy 2021-2025 was presented. The participants shared their challenges and best practices.
The General Assembly allowed members to participate in the election of Board members. Each member was allowed one vote.
Ruben Topchyan, ANQA’s Director, was elected as a member of the ENQA’s Board. On behalf of the National Accreditation Agency, we congratulate Ruben Topchyan on the election.
Lemka S. Izmaylova, NAA’s Director, noted in her statement: “It is important that Eastern Europe is represented in the ENQA Board. Now Western Europe is open to the peculiarities and values of the East European educational systems. We all work with The Standards and guidelines for quality assurance in the European Higher Education Area (ESG), but at the same time we must not lose valuable aspects of our national systems. The ANQA has managed to combine European requirements and its national peculiarities.
In September this year, the ENQA Board decided to extend the NAA’s full membership by 1.5 years.
