Participants take notes and listen intently at the Workshop for Institutions at the 11th Quality Assurance in Tertiary Education Week in March 2016.

The University Council of Jamaica (UCJ) will celebrate its 12th Annual Quality Assurance in Tertiary Education Week, under the theme “Enhancing and Sustaining a Quality Culture: Preparing for Institutional Accreditation,” from March 6 to 10, 2017.

A key objective for the ‘week’ is to assist in the development of tertiary institutions by providing training and professional advice on quality assurance matters. This year’s activities will focus on Institutional Accreditation, which will include training for UCJ Assessors, staff, and workshops for institutions.

In addition, the UCJ will publish newspaper supplements as part of its push to increase public awareness of its role and the services it provides.
