Die neue ISO 29990:2010: Das Managementsystem für Einrichtungen der Aus- und Weiterbildung

Der Internationalen Standardisierungsorganisation ISO ist es gelungen, ein Qualitätsniveau für Bildungsdienstleister weltweit konsens­fähig zu machen!

Die Vertreter der Länder der Welt haben im August 2010 ohne Gegenstimme diese ISO-Norm ange­nommen, welche in der deutschen Fassung im Dezember 2010 veröffentlicht wurde.

Die ISO 29990 lehnt sich an die ISO 9001 an und kann gut darin integriert werden, naturgemäß steht der Lern- und Bildungsprozess im Mittelpunkt.

Die Norm ISO 29990 markiert einen Umbruch und Meilenstein für die weitere Globalisierung des Bildungsmarktes und ist für Bildungsinstitutionen, Universitäten, Schulen, Seminaranbieter aber auch Einzeltrainer der Nachweis eines nachhaltigen Qualitätsmanagements und internationaler Marktfähigkeit.

Klare Bildungsprozesse sowie die Kunden- und Prozess­orientierung sind die Schwerpunkte dieser neuen Norm. Der Standard ermöglicht ein maßgeschneid­er­tes Managementsystem für Dienstleister in Schulung, Bildung und Lernen, jeder Art und Größe.

Die Norm berücksichtigt sowohl die Anforderungen an und von Lehrenden und Lernenden, wie auch wirtschaftliche allgemeine Gesichtspunkte.

Diese Merkmale lassen die Norm zum effektvollen Maß der Qualitätsfähigkeit im internationalen Bildungsmarkt werden. Transparenz und Vergleichbarkeit von Bildungs- und Lern­dienstleistern über Ländergrenzen hinweg sind damit möglich.

Der Standard hat folgende Hauptbestandteile:

  • Bestimmen des Lernbedarfs und Gestaltung der Lernangebote
  • Erbringung, Überwachung und Umsetzung der Lerndienstleistungen
  • Evaluation der Lerndienstleistung
  • Allgemeine Managementanforderungen
  • Strategie und Unternehmensmanagement
  • Managementbewertung und interne Audits
  • Vorbeugende Maßnahmen und Korrekturmaßnahmen
  • Finanz-, Risiko, und Ressourcenmanagement
  • Personal- und Kommunikationsmanagement (intern/extern)
