20 Years of The QAA
The QAA – Quality Assurance Agency – sets the standards of, and regulates all Higher Education institutions in the UK.
For the past 20 years it has helped make UK Higher Education build an enviable reputation, the UK University system is seen as one of the best in the world. Students at UK Universities, whether here or abroad know that the quality of their degree is recognised and respected by employers and institutions around the world.
The QAA wanted a series of films to celebrate their first 20 years, showing how it has been integral to UK Higher Education as one of Britain’s success stories. Previous films from the QAA have had its people explaining what it does – this time however it wanted Vice Chancellors and Heads to tell their story.
Halo interviewed 8 Vice Chancellors around the country as well as QAA Chief Executive, Douglas Blackstock. Each had been in the education sector all their careers and could testify, quite eloquently how the QAA has helped shaped Higher Education over the past 20 years.
We produced five films in total – 4 short ones outlining one area of the QAA’s work and a longer version pulling it all together.
