ADMINISTRATORS TAKE PART IN ISO 21001:2018 AWARENESS TRAINING COURSE
September 18, 2023
Aiming to ensure standardized learner-centered education management, LCUP Administrators attended an Awareness Training Course on ISO 21001:2018 on September 18, 2023 at the Rambutan Hall, BarCIE International Center, City of Malolos, Bulacan. The new ISO version is also known as the Educational Organization Management System (EOMS), which was crafted to help educational institutions implement their best practices.
EOMS is a system anchored to the widely known ISO 9001, the current quality management system followed by the University which is offered and monitored by the international certification body TUV Rheinland. Adapting to EOMS will provide LCUP with a quality management system that empowers schools and colleges to deliver more effective and efficient educational services, enhances educational credibility and standards, and formulates solutions to key academic challenges.
Dr. Christian Bryan Bustamante facilitated the whole-day awareness training course. He is currently the Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences and Full Professor IV of the Department of Political Science, at San Beda University. He is also the Director of the Governance and Quality Assurance Office and the university's Data Protection Officer. The training included critical points under EOMS, such as principles, identifying risks and risk management treatment, setting quality objectives, the community and infrastructure, operational planning and controlling, monitoring, conducting internal audits, management review, and improvement.
With the course outline in mind, the LCUP Administrators were grouped into their areas – top management, instruction, and support staff—to formulate an institutional situation or challenge and design a plan of action in line with the key points learned in the training course. Afterwards, representatives from every group presented the results of their group work. The training concluded with a Closing Message by the University President, Sr. Niceta M. Vargas, OSA, Ph.D.
