The Agencies for Higher Education of the Republic of Srpska (AHERS) and the Association for Evaluation and Accreditation of Teacher Education Programs from Turkey (EPDAD) held a preparatory meeting on february 19, 2021 for the purpose of preparing the staff exchange program.

The meeting was held through the Zoom application and was attended by AHERS Director Biljana Vojvodić and EPDAD President Cemil Öztürk and associates.

The meeting defined common topics that will be the subject of staff exchange programs between the two agencies, including, among other things, the procedures for accreditation of study programs and the working conditions of agencies and higher education institutions during the pandemic.

It was agreed at the meeting that the exchange program would begin in two weeks, and that both sides would prepare detailed presentations of their work, as well as special presentations on common topics.

The staff exchange program between AHERS and EPDAD is carried out within the exchange program of the Central and Eastern European Network of Quality Assurance Agencies in Higher Education (CEENQA), which has been running since 2018.
