ESAGOV, L’Enseignement Supérieur Algérien à l’heure de la Gouvernance Universitaire

According to the worldwide trend, the role of the Algerian higher education system is not limited to the production of knowledge, which boosts the socio-economic development and growth at regional and national level. Algerian universities are expected to give a greater contribution to the national economy competitiveness. That means universities need to frame their action in a medium-term strategic plan taking into consideration their environments, which assures a larger employability rate for their graduates.

The Algerian higher education system has been characterised by a very strong centralisation for a long time. It has recently begun to adapt to the emerging needs, especially in terms of quality assurance, and to promote an environment fostering universities’ greater responsabilisation process.

The partnership, made of 14 Algerian universities, together with the Algerian Higher Education and Scientific Research Ministry and the CIAQES (Commission for the Implementation of Quality Assurance in Higher Education in Algeria) aims at improving and strengthening the quality assurance mechanisms in the Algerian higher education system through the fulfilment of an action plan.

ESAGOV shall provide an operational support to the Algerian universities by means of a rigorous methodology based on the best international practices. Relying on a participatory approach the objective is to support universities during the governance system modernisation process with a particular focus on the quality assurance strengthening.

ESAGOV aims at:

  • defining the development strategy and policy leanings with clearly identified objectives and planned means
  • strengthening the evaluation method through the rapprochement of the Quality Assurance Disposal and the pedagogical support
  • Reinforcing the strategical skills of universities ‘deans as well as of the academic and administrative staff
