The TrainIQA course supports a selected group of Southeast Asian higher education institutions in order to build up systematic internal quality assurance (IQA) structures and to promote quality culture within their own organisations.

TreainIQA aims at preparing QA officers to become multipliers in the field of IQA at their universities. TrainIQA is based on a set of five modules with a strong practical focus, mainly concerned with designing a QM system, tools and procedures of QA, curriculum design and revision, change management and linkages between quality management and higher education management. The course will be accompanied by a blended learning module on data-based information management, data sharing and reporting.

TrainIQA is coordinated by the Centre for Quality Development of the University of Potsdam which hosts the ASEAN-QA Secretariat. Any questions related to the Call and the training course can be addressed to
