In 2015, the basic grant was abolished and the loan system introduced with the condition that the money released would benefit the quality of education. This process was laid down nationally in the Quality Agreements Plan in 2018. Each institution will draw up a plan for spending the money based on six agreed themes in cooperation with the employee participation body. The ISO monitors the realisation of a measurable and visible improvement in quality and the involvement of employee participation in the process of the quality agreements as the plans for each institution are implemented in the coming years. The ISO is part of the National Office for Quality Agreements, an office that was set up to support the representative body. For more information on the quality agreements, see the website.
