Quality is not an act; it is a habit and a trait that we Appreciate

Welcome to Quality Assurance Cell website

Quality assurance in higher education refers to the management procedures adopted by an institution whereby it can guarantee with confidence and surety, that the standards and quality of its educational provision are being maintained and enhanced. The purpose is twofold i.e. to bring accountability and improvement in the system through an internal & external academic auditing process. Quality enhancement on the other hand denotes the continuous process of bringing positive changes in teaching and learning in order to provide for improvement in the quality of institutional provisions.

Message from Minister Higher Education

The world sees marvelous feats of achievements every day in almost every race of life. These achievements remain only short lived because they are soon forgotten as they lose their glory due to lack of maintenance and quality control. Quality assurance control around the world is highly valued as it works as the bridge between any country and its push in evolution, for which the R&D in the institutes of Higher Education play as the primary engines.

Higher Education in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa will be no exception if Quality Assurance Cell forfeits its immensely important and vital responsibilities of the same nature. I remain proud for leading a working entity in my assigned department that is unparalleled and second to none in importance. QAC has an arduous and a consistent job to perform every single day which requires a lot of will power and enormous managerial capabilities, both of which are evidently shining in QAC.

To the entire QAC team, I know your task is not an easy one, but I also know you’re up to the challenge. Wishing you the very best of luck.

Mr. Meena Khan, Minister Higher Education KP
