Any time an organisation redevelops its website, it's a big deal for its staff. But for you as the reader, you probably just want a site that works and is kept up to date. No fanfare.
But still, we'd like to celebrate the launch of our new website, even if we do so modestly. Our website is the main way in which we communicate with people working in quality and standards across UK higher education, and internationally. As our higher education sector continues to develop and innovate, it's important that our website matches that pace.
You should find that the new site is easier to navigate than before and responds to whichever technology you are viewing it on. Its functionality makes it easier to meet our commitments to the Welsh language.
It's not just the main QAA website that we launch today. For the first time, QAA Scotland has its own site. And on behalf of the Scottish Higher Education Enhancement Committee, we've also redeveloped the Enhancement Themes website.
