Our response to COVID19

The QA Commons is mindful of the dramatic and transformational impact COVID-19 is having on all institutions of higher education. As an organization, we are adapting our services to support preparing graduates for the workplace that is now changing more precipitously than ever.

SERVICES

QA Commons tailors cost-effective solutions that expose all relevant stakeholders to its Employability Framework and empower them to incorporate employability into their educational programs, regardless of discipline.

We help organizations implement Essential Employability Qualities (EEQs) in a consistent manner, ensuring quality and reliability in learner and worker skills delivery. Our approach allows organizations to target and integrate the employability skills most needed for education and training through our EEQ Framework which includes 5 Standards for Employability and 8 EEQ Proficiency Areas.

QA Commons offers three bundles of services targeted to specific needs and outcomes of organizations, institutions, and systems. We can tailor a cost-effective plan that exposes instructors and staff to our EEQ Framework and begins the process of incorporating employability into education, training, and career readiness services.
