The quality of education depends not only on a teacher's professional qualifications and research: quality assurance is an important aspect of daily work in the education sector. With Kiwa's support, ambitious education institutions create their own reliable quality assurance systems. This type of integrated system helps avoid, for example, ad hoc decision-making that may have a positive short-term effect but will not necessarily contribute structurally to guaranteeing the quality of education in the long term. Results will be achieved more quickly if management and teachers focus on working effectively to improve quality. Certification not only motivates staff, it also offers students and others a sound indication of the school's strengths and weaknesses.
