Companies around the world, ranging from all business sectors, see DQS as their trusted partner management systems certification. Find out what we have to offer via the overview below, or contact us to see how we can be of service.
SUCCESS THROUGH QUALITY IN EDUCATION
As a provider of education services, your objective is to fulfill the expectations of your customers as regards the development of skills and abilities. To this end, your facilitie´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. At the same time, the standard provides a basis for a quality management system that your facility may use to implement the required level of quality.
Have your processes for initial and further training assessed and certified by DQS according to ISO 29990, in order to continuously demonstrate the quality of your services to all relevant stakeholders – most importantly the students.
YOUR COMPETITIVE ADVANTAGE: TRANSPARENT EDUCATION SERVICES
ISO 29990 is designed for all types of education service providers, to include 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 that 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 – the keywords here being management of 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 more important when seeking public subsidies for education. The certificate is not a substitute for the German AZAV authorization, which is a requirement of the German Labor Office. However, one of the prerequisites for AZAV authorization is evidence of a functional quality management system – a role that can be fulfilled by ISO 29990 as well as ISO 9001.
ISO 29990: HERE´S HOW IT WORKS
As an expert, accredited certification body, 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.
