The quality assurance process for programs and courses (including CTQRA) is transitioning in 2021 to the revised policy and toolkit developed by the Program and Course Quality Assurance Working Party. Further information and resources will be uploaded to this website to support this transition.

It is anticipated that the revised policy suite will be published in February 2021.
