Quality Plan

t10

Two level of quality assurance will be used throughout the entire project duration:

-  Quality assurance of the whole project: the aim is to assure the compliance of the project processes and results with the standards agreed among the Partners (identified indicators of progress), and to implement a continuous quality monitoring. 

-  Quality assurance of the 9 Modules: the Albanian HEI-s have to follow an well-defined procedure for the quality assurance. HEI-s should build up internal quality bodies and respect the quality procedures foreseen by the existing Public Standard. A better quality assurance framework reflecting the Albanian public standards requests, and integrating best Albanian and EU practices will be set up.
