Various internal audits are performed by the quality audit team throughout the academic year.  This is crucial to gather information on what works well and what hinders performance in the College as a whole.

The following internal audits are conducted:

  • Campus Readiness
  • Registration Audits
  • Programme Audits
  • Campus Self-Assessment
  • Portfolio Audits


Newsletters are sent to staff on a regular basis to keep staff informed about Quality related matters.

Examples of QA Newsletters:




Northlink College carries out annual surveys to establish exactly how our students feel about our services and facilities.  For this purpose, surveys are distributed to students on a quarterly basis.

It is important for Northlink College to continually improve the quality of our services and feedback from our students reveals whether their expectations were met.  The results of the surveys allow us to determine trends and identify the areas in which we exceed expectations, areas where we perform well and those we need to improve upon.

The purpose of the Student Surveys is to measure the quality levels in key areas in Education and Training.

Staff satisfaction at work depends on a number of factors, including the opportunity to use their skills and talents, recognition for good work, development opportunities and the work environment.  An employee’s level of satisfaction also depends on personal characteristics, such as his disposition.
