We are involved in a variety of projects within the higher education sector and publish research on areas of interest.
Our Spotlight page brings together a variety of resources on a particular topic of interest. It includes contributions from a number of external resources, as well as our own research, case studies and event materials.
We analyse QAA review reports and identify key themes and trends.

commendations in their review. These case studies are intended to help share
good practice across the sector.
