The Quality Enhancement Project Process
Through the Quality Enhancement Project (QEP), the CHE intends to catalyse a process in which higher education institutions collaborate to identify good practices and solve shared problems in order to have a collective and substantial impact on improving student success. This, in turn, will contribute to the economic and social development of South Africa and its people. The CHE will also interact with other stakeholders to identify opportunities to collaborate on promoting student success, such as through working groups, symposia, research projects and policy recommendations.
The Quality Enhancement Project (QEP) will begin in earnest in 2014, after a period of information gathering and sharing in 2013. It will probably run for about five years, after which there may be another cycle of institutional audits. The outputs of the QEP should make it possible to raise the bar of what can be expected of higher education institutions in terms of promoting student success.
