Quality Assurance

QUALITY MANAGEMENT SYSTEM –  is a collection of Policies, Processes, Procedures, Plans, Practices and Resources, with highlighted Organisation’s Hierarchy, Responsibilities and Specifications aimed at achieving set Organisational Objectives and satisfy the needs and expectations of Customers and affected Stakeholders.

Quality Planning – an essential activity where all Managers must be involved in, deciding on the Service Inputs, Tools and Outputs required to service customers. Setting of Quality/Operational Objectives that are aligned to the Quality policy and Strategic Objectives is the critical element of QMS. Hence the QMS office conducts workshop sessions aimed at empowering the Campus Management Team developing and adopting Quality Objectives. The following are documents or Inputs in place that are aimed at assisting the College to satisfy affected stakeholders including customers:

  • Quality Policy – recently approved
  • Quality Manual – in a process of being replaced
  • Legal framework – from DHET and other relevant Departments
  • Custodian of Internal Divisional/departmental Policies, Processes, Procedures, forms and Guidelines
  • Customer Service Standards – “Charter”
  • Customer Complaints Process & Forms
  • Customer Service Satisfaction Surveys – electronic and manual forms

Quality Assurance – It is proactively focusing on processes that are in place if they assist in achieving set goals. It’s an ongoing process of checking for deviations and allows for immediate corrections, just like the Internal Audits. This is known to be a critical role played by the QMS Office at all campuses where scheduled processes assessments and performance monitoring and evaluations are conducted as planned.

Quality Control – reactive in nature based on the outcomes of tests conducted, classic example is the Customer Satisfaction Surveys completed by students, also any other testing mechanism that is aimed at testing overall product or service. This also includes the coordination of items “To-do List” raised during the Management Review resolutions.

 Ekurhuleni East TVET College has been re-certified by External Audits – SABS, for compliance with the requirements of ISO9001:2015 for a period of 3 years, the certificate expires on the 27th July 2023. The first ISO 9001:2007 was first awarded in 2011, and ever since the College has satisfied all the requirements for certification with SABS.
