The ACES solution in its final form will be an extension of the pre existing SAETO tool which provides a single online questionnaire tool for assessing quality criteria against a range of quality frameworks in use within the partner countries and beyond.
he ACES solution is designed to meet the demands of specific user groups and the requirements of regional accreditation/auditing systems for HE/VET in the partner countries.
The solution is currently available as a web version.
Once all consortium partners decide that the required extensions and localisations work well, the new solution will be made available for the pilot action with field test users.
At the same time, the tested solution will also be implemented on the new GOA-Web Platform.
