18  The RK National System for external QA is represented by the National Accreditation Centre (NAC) MES RK. NAC provides informative, consulting and education services for HEIs on public, professional and international accreditation of educational institutions. It coordinates efforts to develop criteria and procedures for institutional and program accreditation in accordance with the requirements of the Bologna process and to develop cooperation with international structures of national systems of QA.  Current NAC standards for institutional accreditation provide a number of parameters for higher education institutions performance, covering the management of the university, strategic development, content of SP, curriculum, quality of teaching and facilities.

19  Standard “Institutional Accreditation”;  Standard 1. “Mission, Goals and Objectives”;  Standard 2. “Planning and Efficiency”;  Standard 3. “Leadership and Management”;  Standard 4. “Education Programs”;  Standard 5. “Teaching staff and Teaching Efficiency”;  Standard 6. “Students”;  Standard 7. “Research”;  Standard 8. “Finance”;  Standard 9. “Resources: Facilities, Library and Information”.  The new NAC standards of program accreditation are harmonized with ESG requirements and approved by MES RK.

20  In the Republic of Kazakhstan in addition to the State regulation, the quality of education is assessed by independent bodies, on a voluntary basis. As a rule, SP can be accredited only if it has a state license.  MES RK approved and delegated the right to carry out institutional and program accreditation to Kazakh and foreign agencies (National Register, Order № 556 December 30, 2011). On the basis of this document, Independent Kazakhstan Quality Assurance Agency for Education (IQAA) provides both institutional and program accreditation. Particularly for Quality Assurance of Study Programs IQAA has elaborated its own standards. These standards are developed in accordance with national regulations, European standards and international practice.

21 Every SP has to demonstrate its compliance with the following standards:  Standard 1. “Program Education Objectives”;  Standard 2. “Education Results and Efficiency”;  Standard 3. “Students”;  Standard 5. “Content of Study Program”;  Standard 4. “Teaching staff”;  Standard 6. “Facilities and Information Resources”.  Each standard contains general regulations and about 12 criteria for quality assurance of SP. After close examination of standards proposed in the framework of DoQuP project, no significant differences with IQAA standards have been found. Each proposed standard in areas A -“Needs and Objectives”, B- “Educational Process”, C – “Resources”, D- “Monitoring”, E - “Management System” are included in the content of IQAA standards. Thus, standards proposed by DoQuP project fully comply with IQAA standards for program accreditation.

22  Having analyzed the Draft of DoQuP standards for quality assurance of study programmes in partner countries delivered by the Project team, the representatives from Kazakhstan have concluded that proposed standards are fully applicable to the current legal framework of education in the Republic of Kazakhstan.

23  It is necessary to emphasize the significance of ​​ separating the two areas: “Monitoring” and “Management System”. Despite the fact that “Monitoring” can be viewed as a part of “Management System”, the proposed differentiation could help to focus on each one separately and to develop both processes more effectively, which is important for providing quality study programs.

24 The following comments are to be taken into consideration:  According to Area D - “Monitoring”, all 5 proposed standards (D1, D2, D3, D4, D5) are concerned with and related to “students”. Because of importance of other main aspects for quality assurance of SP (such as teaching staff, facilities and financial resources), possibly it could be necessary to combine some standards for students and to add 3 other standards to this area: 1) Monitoring of Teaching Staff 2) Monitoring of Facilities 3) Monitoring of Financial Resources  In order to avoid cultural and language misunderstanding it is desirable to re-name Standard D3 from “Monitoring of students’ carrier” to “Monitoring of students’ progress and achievements”.
