Project Description

Building on success of initial Omsk project, SQA delivered similarly in Nizhny Novgorod using trained Omsk staff.

SQA continued to provide technical mentoring, overall management and monitoring and evaluation. New courses were developed using the modular, outcomes-based approach and were delivered in pilot colleges in Nizhny Novgorod; in addition, trainers from Nizhny trained their counterparts in other regions of Russia (including Cheboksari, Samara, Great Novgorod and Ekaterinburg) how to write modules and develop competence-based courses.

The third stage of the project involved the development of a quality assurance system to support the new courses. SQA quality assurance experts delivered a series of training workshops during 2001 and 2002.
