EKKA contributed towards launching quality agency in Moldova

During the period of September 2014 to June 2015, Estonian Quality Agency for Higher and Vocational Education (EKKA) supported Moldova in creating their national quality agency for higher and professional education. EKKA organised trainings for future staff members of the agency as well as for higher education institutions and potential accreditation experts. EKKA also participated in the development of methodology for study programme accreditation and conducted accreditations of 26 Law programmes in 15 Moldovan universities.

EKKA’s Director Dr Heli Mattisen and the Director for Development and International Cooperation Dr Maiki Udam together with the representatives from NVAO and AQAS formed a committee for the election of the agency’s board. The Board of Moldovan Quality Assurance Agency  (ANACIP) was approved in July 2015.

We wish ANACIP great success in fulfilling their aim to enhance the quality of higher and professional education in Moldova and hope to welcome ANACIP in ENQA very soon.

The above-mentioned activities were in most part financed through the Estonian development cooperation programme „Creation and Capacity Building of Quality Assurance Agency for Professional Education in Republic of Moldova“.
