Educational organizations must constantly evaluate how well their services meet the requirements of learners, other beneficiaries and staff.

ISO 21001:2018 – Management Systems for Educational Organizations sets the standard for developing an educational organization management system (EOMS). ISO 21001:2018 certification will enable your organization to demonstrate its ability to support the acquisition and development of competence through teaching, learning and research. 

What is ISO 21001:2018?

This standard helps educational organizations to establish the necessary policies and procedures to ensure that their products and services meet the needs of learners, teachers, staff and other beneficiaries.

It focuses on specific interactions between these interested parties and the organization, specifying the requirements for an Educational Organization Management System (EOMS) when such an organization:

  • Needs to demonstrate its ability to support the acquisition and development of competence through teaching, learning or research
  • Aims to enhance the satisfaction of learners, other beneficiaries and staff through the effective application of its EOMS, by implementing processes for improvement of the system and assuring conformity to the requirements of learners and other beneficiaries

ISO 21001 is a stand-alone management system standard, aligned with other ISO management system standards, such as ISO 9001, through the application of a high level structure. It can be applied to all kinds of educational providers, regardless of type, size or method of delivery, including pre-school, primary and secondary schools, colleges, universities, adult education, special education schools, and training providers.
