Quality Assurance

INTEAS emphasizes the acceptance of “excellence” overall. Even esteemed institutions in management education rarely achieve top scores in every individual assessment area. What matters is the comprehensive assessment, which INTEAS peer review teams conduct using data from Self-Assessment Reports and on-site observations. Join us in promoting worldwide importance and quality through INTEAS accreditations and certifications for higher and lower education institutions.

ISO 21001:2018 – Educational organizations

The International Standard ISO 21001:2018 describes the requirements for an Educational Organisation Management System (EOMS) and highlights the most important asset of your educational institution – education delivery. ISO 21001 focuses on learners’ actual learning needs and requirements, the development of appropriate content and offerings, and the evaluation of outcomes. ISO 21001:2018 was issued by ISO in May 2018 and replaced the previous standard Learning services for non-formal education and training ISO 29990:2010, which INTEAS also held in the past.

ISO 21001 is based on Quality Management Systems ISO 9001. Still, it provides a specific framework for educational organizations that aim to enhance the satisfaction of their learners by improving the educational processes and ensuring conformity to learners’ requirements, so integrating ISO 9001 and ISO 21001 will be stronger and more efficient in educational organizations.
