Management Team

The Management team consists of the project team based in Groningen (International Tuning Academy Groningen) and the co-coordinator based in Bilbao (Deusto International Tuning Academy; leader work package 3 Quality Assurance) and experts of Educational Testing Service (Amsterdam (NLD) – Princeton (USA). In particular the Groningen team takes care of the organization of meetings and draft agenda’s; it also prepares (policy) guidelines which should serve as a basis for the defining of the subject area and sectoral qualifications framework and the assessment frameworks.

In the framework of the Management Team and the project the non-profit organisation ETS contributes technical expertise required to implement the project successfully. A key role is foreseen in offering support for the development of the five assessment frameworks. The organization also takes the lead in the writing of two two policy / strategic documents: a detailed work plan for the creation and implementation of the assessments and a white paper that lays out the costs/benefits for various assessment designs.
