The National Commission for Further and Higher Education (NCFHE) is the competent authority which conducts External Quality Assurance (EQA) audits on licensed educational intuitions. The purpose of an EQA audit is to check that the internal mechanism, structures and functions of educational institutions are sound and fit for purpose. This is to ensure that students receive a learning experience of good quality.
The process of an EQA audit involves a panel of peer-reviewers who are commissioned by the NCFHE to evaluate the Quality Assurance processes and procedures of a licensed educational institution. The panel is composed of a minimum of a chair of the peer-review panel, one peer reviewer and a student reviewer; they would be accompanied and guided by an NCFHE representative.
The NCFHE is inviting participants to attend a 2-day training seminar for reviewers. Those who complete this training would form part of the NCFHE’s pool of reviewers and would thus be eligible to be appointed as reviewers on panels conducting EQA audits on behalf of the NCFHE.
