Coventry University College (CUC) has received official recognition for its commitment to excellence in education.
The College, which draws on the experience and resources of the city’s university and is based on its campus, has just successfully achieved certification from Lloyd’s Register of Quality Assurance (LRQA), the leading provider of management system certification, verification and training.
Satisfied with operations at the University College following an audit in May this year, LRQA administered their official approval in the form of the ISO 9001 - the world’s most popular quality management system standard during a presentation ceremony in Coventry on Tuesday 25 June 2013.
LRQA’s UK Technical Manager, Richard Crute Morris presented the award to Coventry University College's Director and CEO John Dishman and staff at the ceremony, which Coventry University Vice-Chancellor Madeleine Atkins also attended.
Coventry University College, which opened in September last year, offers an alternative to the traditional higher education route with a range of courses all delivered in a flexible way to suit the learner’s needs.
The award of the ISO certificate demonstrates the College’s continuous improvement as a growing education and training provider.
John Dishman, Director of Coventry University College, said:
Since its inception, Coventry University College’s emphasis has been on delivering a high quality service and I am delighted that this ethos has been recognised, in a relatively short space of time, by the award of ISO certification.
The ISO benchmark sets standards for how organisations should manage their activities efficiently and measures how they are meeting the needs and expectations of their customers.
The ISO award ceremony took place at the Coventry University College’s Armstrong Siddeley building on Gosford Street in Coventry City Centre.
