Marketing Text The new QG extend the quality management system of the ISO 29990 with recommendations for a quality-based design of international educational processes. They strive to improve the learning-oriented frameworks in the international educational cooperation.
What are the QUALITY GUIDELINES?
A set of recommendations arising from the earlier Transnational Quality project (TQP) that aim to:
Improve international educational cooperation and create mutual trust, thus contributing to the harmonisation of European education systems
ensure that a proper balance is achieved between the interests of the various parties involved in international education
Provide a frame of reference for quality assurance and evaluation of international educational ventures.
This edition of the QUALITY GUIDELINES is divided into six chapters. The first, describes the objectives of the QUALITY GUIDELINES. Then their scope is defined in chapter 2, and the types of transnational education mentioned in the scope are explained in detail in chapter 3. In addition to national legislation and standards, in international cooperation in education, a code of conduct is crucial and this is addressed in chapter 4. Intercultural competences play a crucial role in the planning and implementation of transnational learning services. These competences are dealt with in detail in chapter 5. The final chapter is the largest and most important section of the QUALITY GUIDELINES. It contains a detailed table of specific recommendations for quality management in education that involves international cooperation among LSPs.
