It is almost a truism that education is a prerequisite for success in the modern world. It is, therefore, essential to have measures that ensure that any given learning institution provides nothing less than quality education to their learners. For this reason, some organizations are responsible for approving learning institutions after a thorough process of vetting their academic programs to determine whether they meet the required standards of quality. Approval by these organizations (accreditation agencies) is necessary for learning institutions as it is a validation for the quality of services they offer. Obtaining the accreditation status will definitely influence the decision of parents on the choice of school they would like for their children.
At JAG Consulting Services, some professional consultants will gladly serve your institution by examining it entirely and providing a clear plan that will help your school obtain accreditation. Our services will help in ensuring that the quality of your school programs is per the required accreditation standards.
Stick with us throughout this article to get to know why you should consider your school obtaining an accreditation status and our role (as JAG Consulting Services) in making sure that happens.
Here are some of the ways through which accreditation can help a learning institution:
Governments usually don’t get to monitor private learning institutions. As a result, these institutions have to depend on accrediting agencies to monitor their programs. Through the rigorous vetting process prior to accreditation, the school gets a chance to assess their quality. In doing so, the institution can get to know of their shortcomings and find out the root causes of such shortcomings. Generally, the process will help the institution to account for both its strengths and weakness and thus help keep the institution on track.
The accrediting agencies have standards that they require the learning institution to meet. These standards are set to ensure the learning institutions provide quality education. In case the learning institution fails to meet the set standards, the onus of analyzing the status of the school’s programs and providing solutions befalls the institution’s management. From comparing the status of the school with the set standards, the schools can come up with workable solutions to ensure they improve the quality of their services.
Students will need their transfer credits accepted in order to transfer from one school to another, or eventually to college. It is, however, unfortunate that not all credits are treated the same. Transferring from an unaccredited school to another school or institution may prove difficult since the credits may not be accepted. Accreditation is not, in itself, a guarantee that other institutions will accept the transfer credits. Nonetheless, a student transferring from an accredited institution has better chances of acceptance.
Besides giving a student a competitive edge on transferring, accreditation will enable a graduate’s credentials to be accepted by other learning institutions.
