Education Quality Assurance
increased pressure for educational institutions to reduce costs,
implementation of an
effective management system can mean the difference between success and
failure. Although ISO
9001, the international standard for quality management systems, was
initially applied to the manufacturing and service industries, it can
be equally as effective when applied to education and training activities.
we consider addressing the educational needs of students as just
another form of service, then managing an educational institution as if
it were a service business makes sense.
process management approach of ISO 9001 will yield excellent results,
as each process will be managed for optimum performance. In
any business, customer satisfaction should be the main focus, and so it
should be in educational institutions. The direct customers
are the students, but indirectly they can be parents of the students,
the state which provides funding to the institution, and even the
students' country because education, training, and skill development
contributes to the national economy.
benefits of ISO 9001 compliance are:
utilization of time and resources
efficiency and lower operating costs
quality and timely delivery of services
control of quality and processes
performance from suppliers
of personnel clearly defined
system provides useful reference
rates of rework
control during periods of change or growth
records in case of litigation
following organizations will benefit from an ISO 9001 quality
of training services (i.e., seminars, videos, on site and on-line
organization does not need to be ISO 9001 certified to benefit from
this system. Compliance with the requirements of the standard
is all that you will need to achieve (see "What is ISO 9000?" at the
bottom of this page).
