1st ENQA training of agency reviewers

Following the debriefing/brainstorming meeting on 17 March 2009 in order to prepare for the training of experts for agency reviews, this marked the first training session/workshop organised by ENQA, which took place in Paris, France.

The experience of the use of the ESG, gained over the last years, and the functioning of EQAR show how important it is that the experts are briefed about the way in which the membership criteria/ESG are to be interpreted. Based on the lessons learned, feedback and materials from the already completed reviews, the training session aimed at providing experts with, among others, the necessary knowledge and guidance on the interpretation of the ENQA membership criteria/ESG. Reviewers who attended the session will be included in the ENQA pool of trained reviewers.
