QAA Scotland Face-to-Face Events Update

Date: March 18 - 2020
In light of the current Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, QAA Scotland has taken the decision not to run any face-to-face meetings or events scheduled between now and 30 June 2020. Safeguarding the wellbeing of our staff, sector colleagues, and event delegates is of the utmost importance at this time, and we are now adapting our planned programme of activity for this period.

We are in the process of reviewing plans for the 4th International Enhancement Conference, 3-4 June 2020. At this moment in time, we would ask that delegates and contributors hold these dates in their diaries as we explore how best to deliver valuable activities and outputs online. We appreciate your patience and look forward to sharing a revised programme of activity soon.

If you have any questions about these changes to our scheduled events, please contact
