Abstract

Quality in education is a growing concern across the Commonwealth where governments have made impressive gains in increasing access to education at all levels. However, increased access has not necessarily led to improved learning outcomes. As such, most Commonwealth countries have established QA and accreditation bodies—44 countries have councils, commissions and authorities which cater to the QA needs of tertiary education institutions. The last ten years have witnessed a phenomenal increase in the number of quality assurance agencies.
