The issue of quality is an important topic in education and training. Quality of teaching and learning, quality of training providers and quality of assessment are popular topics for researchers in this area. High quality training and assessment is central to the integrity of education and training systems and to the qualifications they offer. To maintain trust and confidence in the value of these qualifications, learners require assurance that those they want to enrol in have value in the labour market and relevance for their intended occupation. Employers, when making recruitment decisions, require assurance that qualifications have been gained from reputable providers and international systems want to be reassured that overseas qualifications are equivalent to their domestic counterparts. Finally, governments require accountability on all fronts for their funding decisions.
