Quality Assurance Committee (QAC)

Introduction

Quality assurance in higher education refers to the management procedures adopted by an institution whereby it can guarantee with confidence and surety, that the standards and quality of its educational provision are being maintained and enhanced. The purpose is twofold i.e. to bring accountability and improvement in the system through an internal & external academic auditing process. Quality enhancement on the other hand denotes the continuous process of bringing positive changes in teaching and learning in order to provide for improvement in the quality of institutional provisions.

At the provincial level, Govt. of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa has since long been making efforts for horizontal and vertical expansion of educational facilities in the Province with all available resources but not much attention has been paid to the quality of education and governance systems. In view of persistent public perception about low quality of higher education provided in public sector institutions, the Higher Education Department decided to establish an independent Quality Assurance Cell in HED to launch Quality Assurance Program in public sector colleges of the province as well as to coordinate with public sector universities of KP for having better quality of education in HEIs along with its affiliated colleges. The prime objective of establishing QA Unit is to ensure the provision of high-quality teaching and learning environment in universities & colleges of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and suggest improvement in their governance system so as to produce knowledgeable, skilled, disciplined and employable graduates for the society.
