ECA presents good practices concerning joint programmes.

European Consortium for Accreditation has recently published a set of good practices concerning joint programmes gathered into a single publication entitled „Joint Programme Checklist: inspired by quality assurance„. The general aim of the publication is to present information collected during already finished assessments and to increase the success of newly established joint programmes. Author of the checklist suggest to interpret the areas highlighted in the document as a list of issues that could be worthy to take closer look at but not as a „to do list” nor a complete codex.

The publication is divided into three parts. First of them is dedicated to issues related to consortium starting a joint programme, second – to governance of joint programme and the last one concerns issues related to actual offering of the programme.
