UNorthwest has achieved
Organizational Quality Certification with integrated ISO 9001 conformity
audited by the Quality & Standards Advocacy (QSA)
The Quality & Standards Advocacy (QSA) is an independent associative group composed of recognized quality practitioners who are certified under accredited quality schemes as quality professionals, assessors, auditors and lead auditors drawn from the quality sector. QSA is an independent group of peers whose members have associated themselves in order to organize, promote, execute and control quality tasks. QSA has been organized as an independent and impartial group within the structure of UNIDI Brussels and is an affiliate with consultative status of the organization without voting rights, working under an independent and self-governing structure apart from UNIDI‘s governance and control. In order to provide quality assurance and qualty improvement in conformity with commonly practised quality standards, QSA has assumed a permanent quality control over the UNIDI network and associated institutes. Moreover, QSA also offers its quality services to all parties which apply for such on a voluntary basis.
QSA does not offer educational accreditation services which are normally provided by accreditation bodies specifically recognized for such services under regionally or nationally approved schemes and standards, nor are its services to be considered a surrogate. The group is exclusively dedicated to create quality policy, conduct conformity assessments, quality certification, certification of competent personnel, certification of management and organizational systems, and monitor special courses, programs and delivery, instructional and course materials, teaching and training methods, student recruitment, student counseling and career guidance services and auxiliary services within the scope of education and vocational education and training.
