FHEC WINS APQN QUALITY AWARD
The APQN Award night was held at the Intercontinental Fiji, Natadola during the 2016 APQN Conference.
“The FHEC had made its mark with the APQN and its work being recognised by this network puts Fiji on the map,” described FHEC Chairperson, Dr Milika Sobey.
APQN outgoing President, Dr Jagannath Patil explained that the APQN award is an initiative to mark decennial celebrations of the APQN.
“Quality deserves to be recognized and rewarded. No or little avenues are available to recognize and reward contributions made by QA bodies and their professionals. APQN Quality Awards are aimed at bridging this gap,” described Dr Patil.
Dr Patil clarified that this was not a competition as agencies in different countries may have different contexts and mandates. Thus these would not be compared or judged absolutely but an effort is being made to identify and distinguish extra ordinary QA contributions and good practices that have potential of replications among network.
Recipients of the 2016 APQN main awards include:
