In Ukraine started the first school audit

В Украине стартовал первый аудит школ

November 4, in Kiev region began a pilot institutional audit in Litkovskaya school named after Mikhail Stelmakh, who will check the quality of education in the school. About it reports a press-service of the Ministry of education and science of Ukraine.

An important new mechanism will create an external quality assurance system of school education. Our goal is to make all schools in Ukraine give high quality education. With the current system of evaluation of institutions is impossible. Institutional audit will help each school to look at their strengths and weaknesses. It is very important that the audit will not be a trivial test indicating only problem — the result should be a specific annual plan to overcome the shortcomings that will help the school become better, — said the Minister of education and science Anna Novosad.

In the course of the audit, the experts will pay attention to the safety and comfort of students, the process of estimation of knowledge of pupils, quality of teaching and the effectiveness of the internal quality assurance system of education.

Validation planning will be held in each school once in 10 years, and unscheduled audit not more often than once in 2 years.

Recall, the newly appointed head of the Ministry of education and science of Ukraine Anna Novosad stated that it intends to continue ex-Minister Liliya Hrynevych work and increase the output of the preceding command.

According to the official, the whole system of education should be based on the principle of detonation and studentcentrum. That is, the principles and objectives of the Ministry of education and educational institutions should focus on the interests and needs of the student.
