Accreditation

I have just returned from a week's intensive work in Hong Kong where I led a panel for the accreditation authority there, The Hong Kong Council for Accreditation of Academic and Vocational Qualifications (HKCAAVQ). This is something I do once or twice a year and although it is laborious, it is also rewarding.
