Peer Review in the United Kingdom/Scotland

In the United Kingdom, with support of the Quality Improvement Agency (QIA) a Peer Review network of about 800 VET institutions with about 170 active sub-groups – each encompassing about four to eight participating organisations – has developed in the past years. Peer Review in the UK is a voluntary improvement-oriented activity, the procedure is called “Peer Referencing” and fits in very well with the European Peer Review. With almost half of the 1,800 institutions delivering VET involved in Peer Review at this moment, the UK institutions are eager to start Peer Reviews in transnational European partnerships.
