We are delighted to announce that the International Association for Quality Assurance in Pre-Tertiary & Higher Education (QAHE) has entered into a significant Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the Agency for Accreditation of Educational Organizations and Programs "Sapattuu Bilim." This collaboration marks a key milestone in our continued efforts to foster partnerships and promote excellence in education.
"Sapattuu Bilim" is a prominent agency registered with the Ministry of Justice in 2016, operating in accordance with the Law of the Kyrgyz Republic "On Education" and other relevant regulations. The agency has diligently developed internal regulatory documents to ensure the quality of education in the Kyrgyz Republic and has actively participated in international networks and associations. As a member of the Eurasian Association for Quality Assessment in Education (EAOKO), "Sapattuu Bilim" has demonstrated its commitment to upholding rigorous quality standards in education. Additionally, their full membership in the International Network of Agencies for Quality Assurance in Higher Education (INQAAHE) and the Asia Pacific Quality Network (APQN) further attests to their dedication to international best practices.
In recognition of their expertise, the Agency has received License No. LS200000806 from the Ministry of Education and Science of the Kyrgyz Republic, authorizing them to conduct advanced training courses for teaching staff in two programs: "Pedagogy and Psychology in the Educational Process" and "Education Quality Management System." Furthermore, "Sapattuu Bilim" has established collaborations with esteemed institutions such as the Russian agency AKKORK, with whom they have signed an agreement to conduct International and Professional-Public Accreditations. This partnership enhances their capacity to provide comprehensive accreditation services. In September 2022, the Agency underwent an external assessment by the European agency ASIIN to ensure compliance with the European Standards and Guidelines (ESG) for quality assurance in higher education. This evaluation further demonstrates their commitment to continuous improvement and adherence to international quality standards.
The MOU between QAHE and "Sapattuu Bilim" signifies a shared commitment to enhancing educational quality and promoting international collaboration in the field of education. Through this partnership, we aim to exchange expertise, share best practices, and foster mutual growth worldwide.
We express our sincere appreciation to all individuals and teams involved in making this partnership possible. It is through your dedication and commitment that we can forge meaningful collaborations and drive positive change in education.
