INTERNATIONAL EDUCATIONAL QUALITY CERTIFICATION
UNWTO - Themis Foundation TEDQUAL System
The UNWTO.TedQual Certification is issued by the World Tourism Organization, a specialised agency of the United Nations, to support the quality improvement of hospitality and tourism education and training programmes around the world.
The UNWTO.TedQual Certification is based on the understanding that quality of hospitality and tourism education and training should be seen as a comprehensive and continuous process.
Since 2008, the institute (through its former Brussels campus) has been awarded by the UNWTO.TedQual (Tourism Education Quality) certification and is currently under renewal. This certification is the international hallmark of excellence in hospitality and tourism management education. The aim of the certification is to contribute to quality and efficiency, and represents one of the highest standards of achievement for tourism & hospitality schools worldwide.
The “TedQual” is a Quality Assurance for higher education, available to all teaching institutions, public or private, from any country in the world. Due to its quality assurance system requirements, the TedQual certification issued to an institution, fully integrates all the criteria required for INTERNATIONAL ACCREDITATION, in terms of the institution's management, structure, organisation and its educational programmes. The certification is awarded for Bachelor and Master Programmes of study. A key requirement is that the programme meets the needs of the key beneficiaries (students, employers, faculty and civil society). A vital consideration to be awarded the UNWTO.TedQual Certification, a programme is to follow an ethical approach according to which all actors must “do things right at all times and meet legitimate expectations of consumers/tourists", thus helping to implement the principles contained in the Global Code of Ethics for Tourism (UNWTO Quality and Trade Committee), adopted by resolution A/RES/406(XIII) at the thirteenth WTO General Assembly (Santiago, Chile, 1999).
