We work with students and staff from across the Scottish higher education sector to deliver student-led projects as part of each Enhancement Theme. During the current Resilient Learning Communities Theme, QAA Scotland are working in partnership with sparqs (student partnerships in quality Scotland) to support this activity under the umbrella of Higher Education: More than a Degree.
Drawing on the expertise of a student-led Steering Group, strands of work will be identified each year which reflect key priorities for students and support the delivery of the Enhancement Theme. Each project will develop policy, practice, resources and networks around common issues and areas of interest.
The page will include links to each student-led project within the theme.
The steering group for the student-led project is comprised of students’ association officers and staff members with student engagement roles from across Scotland.
