La démarche qualité au service de mon organisme de formation démarche qualité au service de mon organisme de formation … réellement?
Le point de départ de toute démarche qualité est de comprendre quels sont « les fonctionnements » de l’entreprise permettant de détecter, de traiter et de satisfaire le besoin d’un client. Intéressant, non? Pourquoi? Tout simplement car c’est l’objectif de toute entreprise pérenne de comprendre comment satisfaire avec efficacité ses clients. De nos jours, la notion d’efficience est de plus en plus présente à savoir satisfaire les clients en optimisant au mieux toutes les ressources de l’entreprise.
Afin de fédérer vos collaborateurs autour de ce questionnement vous pouvez les réunir en séance de « brainstorming » par groupe de 5/6 personnes maximum et leur poser la question suivante:
Que se passe-t-il dans notre organisme de formation (concept de la boîte noire) pour satisfaire à un besoin identifié d’un client?
Vous pourrez alors commencer par noter toutes les idées sous la forme d’une liste puis essayer de les regrouper en « ensemble » afin de donner de la cohérence aux différents éléments. Une fois que les différents « ensembles » logiques au traitement d’une demande client ont été mis en évidence, il est possible de les représenter graphiquement au sein de « la boîte noire » (l’entreprise) et d’en définir les interactions les uns aux autres … C’est ce que l’on appelle une cartographie. Ensuite, les interactions avec l’environnement de l’organisme peuvent être indiquées. Suite de l'article... cur chuige cáilíochta chun freastal ar mo eagraíocht oiliúna ... i ndáiríre?

The Impact of Higher Education: Addressing the challenges of the 21st century Impact of Higher Education: Addressing the challenges of the 21st century
EAIR 35th Annual Forum 2013, Rotterdam, the Netherlands, 28-31 August 2013

The Forum will be hosted by the Erasmus University Rotterdam.
As your Forum Chair for the 35the Annual Forum in 2013 it’s my privilege to invite you to the Netherlands and the Erasmus University Rotterdam (EUR) next August. This year’s theme is The Impact of Higher Education with the subtitle Addressing the challenges of the 21st century. We will be honoured with your presence.
Hundred years young: Erasmus University Rotterdam is in 2013 one of the youngest universities in our country. Having started in 1913 with 55 students in a single discipline (Commerce), who were provisionally accommodated in two classrooms in the former stock exchange or Beurs, today, the university has around 25,000 students enrolled in around 20 bachelor and 50 master programmes. A quarter of these students come from abroad. The two classrooms have made way for two campuses, built brick by brick in the last few years. The new Woudestein campus will be festively opened again in our centennial year.
Thinking power combined with acting power; this is embedded in our university’s DNA. Developing and sharing knowledge to solve the issues of today and tomorrow: in Rotterdam, our testing ground and laboratory - and worldwide. Our pillars are health, prosperity, management and culture.
At home in the world is our motto whose essence we have borrowed from our patron Desiderius Erasmus, the famous Renaissance thinker, who was born in Rotterdam. The whole earth is my fatherland. This, too, is embedded in our DNA – no wonder in a world port city like Rotterdam. Where merchants and business men once established a (private) graduate school, for years now we have had a campus that has become an international classroom for students and researchers from all over the globe.

U-Multirank Exceeds Recruitment Goal of 500, the new international university ranking initiated by the European Commission, has exceeded its target of 500 registered higher education institutions ahead of schedule. To date 540 higher education institutions have registered for participation. Registration is still open, but space is limited, so interested institutions are encouraged to register now. Institutions in more than 60 countries will be represented in the initial listing, published for the first time early next year. U-Multirank differs from existing rankings by rating universities according to a broader range of performance factors, aimed at providing a more realistic and user-friendly guide to what they offer.
The currently registered institutions represent a balanced sample in different ways: In line with recruitment targets, about 75% are in the European Union and 25% in non-EU countries. Different profiles of higher education institutions will take part in the first round of U-Multirank, for instance universities of applied sciences and universities with a technical profile (around 12% each), comprehensive (around 50%) and specialized universities, etcetera. A large number of research intensive universities  are also represented. Read more...

Successful CeQuInt Panel Members Day Friday 3 May 2013, the CeQuInt Panel Members Day took place. Both experts and coordinators met in the offices of AQ Austria in Vienna.
The goal of the CeQuInt Panel Members Day was to provide both the selected experts and the coordinators of CeQuInt's pilot procedures with the necessary background regarding the project, the pilot procedures and the assessment frameworks.
The main aim of bringing the experts and coordinators together was of course to increase consistency between the pilot procedures. In order to further increase consistency, each of the selected experts will also take part in three pilot procedures. The day kicked off with a welcome word by Achim Hopbach, the Director of our host AQ Austria and current president of ENQA. He gave a brief introduction to the state of affairs of QA and AQ Austria.
The rest of day different topics were discussed, starting off with the rationale, activities and intended outcomes of the CeQuInt project. This was followed by an introduction to the pilot procedures. Here the focus was on the procedural steps and on the functionning of the panels, including the roles of each of the participants. The pièce de resistance were the frameworks, including the standards and criteria. Here, the guidelines document and an outline on how to substantiate assessment reports guided all the discussions.
The Panel Members Day led to lively and very positive debates. These dedicated panel members are not affraid to voice their opinion, but when they do, this is done by suggesting improvements. Everything we expect of peers, since this enhancement-led perspective is what quality assurance should be about.

Diverging levels of research efficiency change the global landscape of innovation Dirk Van Damme. Recovering from the current recession and building a sustainable economy based on growth and social progress require investments in innovative research. No future is imaginable without a new wave of innovation. But innovative ideas come from creative research, in many cases produced by universities and research institutions. Over the past decades countries have generally increased their investment in R&D, leading to higher numbers of researchers, more research activities and higher research output. Thanks to more sophisticated indicators and monitoring tools, we are now able to measure progress in research and to evaluate the impact of research in the global research system.
This global research system still is a rather concentrated system, with a very strong core and a wide periphery. Despite globalization and increasing access to research findings thanks to technology, many countries still are completely absent from this global community. Of the research universities included in the top 200 of the Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2012, more than half are in the United States (76) or the United Kingdom (31).

What makes a NEET? Karinne Logez. NEETS - young people aged between 15 and 29 years old who are not in employment, education or training - are a potential problem both for society and for themselves. The proportion of young people neither working nor studying offers an insight into how well economies manage the transition between school and work – better than youth unemployment rates, which do not take into account the numbers in education. It's especially illuminating when the figures are broken down into those who are still looking for work ("unemployed") and those who have dropped out of the labour market altogether ("inactive"). Particularly worrying are those in the very youngest age bracket – aged 15 to 19 – who may not have completed their secondary education and are disproportionately likely not even to be seeking work. There’s a risk they may never catch up with their better educated peers.
So what makes a NEET? And what can governments do to make sure young people successfully make the transition from education into work? The latest edition of Education Indicators in Focus suggests that there are several intertwined factors. Read more...
