Standards Shape Education Quality Management
When a school or college applies for Organisational Membership, we require a submission which proves a minimal ability to adhere to
the Centre’s Quality Standards.
Generally, whether standards are set by peers or by government officials or elected representatives of a system (which applies to a given country, state or region), standards exist to provide accountability, and ultimately improve academic quality where otherwise it may be lacking.
The Centre's quality standards are outlined in a simple framework called the Framework for Excellence.

Provide Supporting Evidence – A Valuable Step in Your Quality Control Processes
An application for membership must be supported by evidence to a minimum threshold.
The joining application is rigorous – we get it. By requiring a robust application we can be confident in the standards of our members.
- school success
- student achievement
- the Centre's credentials
- retained quality across the member network
Please use the Evidence Record to help you prepare or identify any gaps in the submission. It is common for this stage to take 5-6 hours to gather the evidence.
To assist, suggested types of evidence are included on the Self-Assessment Evidence Record template. Please contact us if you have questions regarding this step as we can help.

Registration and Approval Fees
We have always kept our fees to the minimum possible. We believe in equity in global education even given vast differences in world economies. By providing opportunities for institutions from less economically advantaged nations to join the Centre, then we're taking a critical step toward inclusive education.

The support from IARC has been excellent and their attitude towards education is so forward thinking. In comparison to other accrediting bodies, IARC's is way ahead for service, support and affordability" Daryl Tempest-Mogg, Director of Vocational Training - ADL, Academy for Distance Learning
