What is ISO 21001:2018 ?
ISO 21001 is an international standard developed by the International Organization for Standardization which provides management tools for organizations that offer educational products and services. It intends to help educational providers meet students requirements and needs. ISO 21001 is based on ISO 9001 - Quality Management Systems, but 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. The standard can be applicable to all organizations that provide a curriculum for the development of knowledge, skills and attitudes by means of different lecturing methods
ISO 21001:2018 specifies requirements for a management system for educational organizations (EOMS) when such an organization:
a) needs to demonstrate its ability to consistently provide, share and facilitate the construction of knowledge to learners conforming with applicable statutory and regulatory requirements
b) aims to enhance satisfaction of learners, other customers, and personnel through the effective application of its EOMS, including processes for improvement of the system.
All requirements of ISO 21001 are generic and intended to be applicable to all educational organizations that provide, share and facilitate the construction of knowledge to learners through teaching, training or research, regardless of type, size and product and service provided. The standard therefore applies to the management system of any organization which utilizes a curriculum to provide, share and transfer knowledge.
