QUALITY ASSURANCE

AND DEVELOPMENT

The Bell Quality Assurance & Development (QAD) system provides the overall quality assurance and development

for English language teaching operations under the Laureate English program. This ensures that

Laureate can measure the operational quality and efficiency of centres delivering the program.

The QAD system provides a framework and a methodology for:

• accurately profiling Laureate’s language programs

• explicitly stating expected quality standards for a program

• assessing whether a program currently meets required quality levels in all areas of work

• encouraging exchange of information and ideas within the Laureate network

• helping to set goals for future development towards even higher standards

To achieve these aims, highly trained Quality Assurance professionals conduct assessment and advisory visits

– focusing on teaching, learning and program management. The assessments are made within 14 evaluation

frames, and adhering to 170 measurable criteria statements.

Through a secure micro-site, Laureate has full visibility of all the assessments, the detailed reports, a dashboard

with which to compare across its centers, and an Action Logframe which details actions taking place

around its network, with the set timeframes for these to be achieved.
