ISO 29990 - Education Quality Management System Certification

Deliver value to your students with ISO 29990 certification

How can quality of education be ensured and compared?

ISO 29990 is a quality management system standard for providers of education and training services. ISO 29990 provides a unified model for a quality and professional mode of operation, as well as a common reference point for both LSPs and their clients for the conceptualization, development and delivery of the specified program.

International Education Excellence (IEE) is a standard which allows parents and students alike to compare the quality of schools globally. The IEE certification process takes into consideration all relevant areas of school quality, including the school’s management, quality of staff and teaching processes, among others. The certification encourages schools to evaluate and improve their internal management system by identifying any key deficiencies found as well as providing remedies for their resolution.

Why is certification of learning important?

There are a multitude of LSPs offering similar programs. However, not all of the providers are competent and effective.

With the ISO 29990 certification, the transparency and comparability of the various programs offered by the many providers are increased. ISO 29990 is not only useful for organizations looking for a reputable partner to work with, but it also imposes on LSPs to ensure their consistency in providing quality services and improving organizational effectiveness.

In addition to ensuring that education providers deliver value to their students, the IEE certification process helps schools identify problems early on to allow a speedy resolution and minimize potential reputational and financial risks. It can be used as an effective management tool to ensure excellence in all levels of your institution’s operations.
