NAQAAE’S FIFTH INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE

Tackling national strategic issues in education and addressing the current and anticipated challenges of the rapidly changing education arena are at the core of NAQAAE’s interests. Hence, NAQAAE’s annual International Conference is one of its main means to discuss these issues and challenges with a wide base of stakeholders.

Ten years after its inception, NAQAAE as a learning organization is keen to reflect with all stakeholders on the progress achieved in quality assurance of education, the obstacles we have met on our joint quest for quality as well as the challenges we are facing and the means to overcome them. Together we will contemplate on our aspirations for high quality Egyptian education and draw a road map to bring those aspirations into reality … to transform the dreams into collaborative actions. Hence the choice of NAQAAE’s 5th International Conference theme " Quality Assurance of Education: Reflections… Prospects…Aspirations”.
