Analysis of audit recommendations for improvement of IQA Standard 1
This analysis of recommendations for improvement of Standard 1 is part of a wider review of audit outcomes by the Malta Further and Higher Education Authority (MFHEA), which commenced late in 2022 with analysis of examples of good practice. The MFHEA then commissioned analysis of recommendations for improvement of Standard 1, reported here. These recommendations were collated from reports of Quality Assurance (QA) audits undertaken by the MFHEA and its predecessor organisation, the National Commission for Further and Higher Education (NCFHE), between 2016 and 2021.
The National Qualifications Framework for Malta has 11 Internal Quality Assurance (IQA) standards. These apply to further, higher and adult formal educational provision, regardless of the mode of study or place of delivery, including transnational and cross-border provision. They draw on the Standards and Guidelines for Quality Assurance in the European Higher Education Area (ESG) formulated by the European Association for Quality Assurance in Higher Education (ENQA).
