Quality Assurance Agency for higher education: de-designation

ASCL response to government consultation on the Quality Assurance Agency for higher education: de-designation.
ASCL has consulted our members who deliver Higher Education (HE) on the issue of de-designation of the Quality Assurance Agency (QAA). While we recognise that the QAA has asked to be removed from the designation as the quality body for HE, we set out some concerns about this below. 

Our concerns centre on the future role of QAA with HE providers, the increased cost of the work of the Office for Students (OfS) to HE providers, and the difficulties with recruiting assessors to the new quality roles.
