ISO 29990 - Success through Quality in Education
As a provider of education services, your objective is to fulfill the expectations of your customers regarding development of skills and abilities. To this end, your facility’s competence in the conduct of initial and further training is the most decisive factor. ISO 29990 provides an internationally applicable framework for the quality of education service providers. An assessment and certification by DQS according to ISO 29990 continuously demonstrates the quality of your services to all relevant stakeholders – most importantly to the students.
Transparent education services as a competitive advantage
ISO 29990 is designed for all types of education service providers, including colleges and universities, industrial firms offering in-house further training, as well as association-run training institutes. In doing so, the standard emphasizes the single most important asset of any training institution: the learning services themselves. With its focus on the actual learning needs of the target group, the development of suitable content, and the evaluation of learning results, the standard describes a model which is trend-setting because it provides evidence of competence and quality. In addition, the standard, with its requirements for the profitability of an institution, also functions as a valuable tool for management and leadership with respect to important factors like resources, finances and risk.
You continue to systematically develop the quality of education services offered by implementing the standard’s requirements, and you improve your competitive ability through transparent learning services. Certified management systems are also becoming increasingly important when seeking public subsidies for education.
How it works
We will conduct a comprehensive audit of the effectiveness of your management system according to the classic DQS certification process. An assessment by DQS also offers your educational facility additional advantages that go above and beyond a simple confirmation of conformity: the sector experience of our auditors allows them to point out opportunities and risks, to identify potential for improvement, and to give guidance for decision-making processes. For your benefit, we will customize audit planning to suit your objectives, your education services, and your students’ particular circumstances.
