ASIC Schools Accreditation is a voluntary, non-governmental process that gives recognition to international schools that meet established quality standards. The purpose of accreditation is to assure the public, students, parents and other stakeholders as to the quality of an institution and its commitment to high standards through a system of continuous improvement.
Of particular importance today is the safeguarding of children and young people. ASIC Accreditation is extremely thorough in ensuring that students in your school’s care are looked after and taught in a clean, healthy and secure environment.
It is probable that your school is already accredited within your own country, however ASIC accreditation confirms your commitment to internationalisation and in particular your commitment to supplying exemplary services to international students.
Our accreditation process consists of a set of key performance indicators split into 8 main areas, namely;
A – Premises, and Health and Safety
B – Governance, Management and Staff Resources
C – Learning, Teaching and Research Activity
D – Quality Assurance and Enhancement
E – Student Welfare
F – Awards and Qualifications
G – Marketing and Recruitment of Students
H – Systems Management and Compliance with Immigration Regulations
ASIC Accreditation allows your school to demonstrate a commitment to high quality international education, as well as ensuring that your school is continually improving and keeping up with the best international education standards.
ASIC School Accreditation is a Quality Assurance process that drives a school’s continuous improvement, through:
• Robust benchmarking against internationally-agreed standards;
• A partnership, focusing on support, development and monitoring;
• A model of peer review that brings together international educators from around the world.
The status of international accreditation demonstrates a school’s commitment to high quality international education to the wider education community as well as to prospective families, educational leaders, teachers, universities, embassies, other government departments, and global companies and organisations.
Accreditation by ASIC will boost the profile of your institution and confirm that it meets high standards of education, welfare and good practice. Our international accreditation will reassure students, parents and agents that your institution is a good choice, and that you will provide them with professional teaching, valuable qualifications and a positive learning experience.
