According to The Standards and Guidelines for Quality Assurance in the European Higher Education Area (ESG-2015), one of the essential components of the development of quality higher education is the implementation of consistent follow-up actions on the results of the study programme accreditation in the form of post-accreditation monitoring. The implementation of this monitoring in Ukrainian higher education began with the legislative changes adopted by the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine on May 2, 2023.
Post-accreditation monitoring as one of the innovations in the Ukrainian accreditation process, which is currently being implemented, was the topic that Ivan Nazarov, Vice Head of NAQA, presented at a seminar training at the National University of Life and Environmental Sciences of Ukraine on January 31.
In his speech, he explained the complex details related to the criteria and procedures for post-monitoring of accredited study programmes. Among the event participants were heads of departments, scientific-pedagogical and scientific staff of the university.
It is important to note that the first stage of the experiment is currently underway in a group of Ukrainian higher education institutions that have agreed to participate in the pilot testing of documents, rules and procedures for post-accreditation monitoring in Ukraine.
