IQAA and Umalusi

IQAA is an independent agency, established according to best international practice in quality assurance. IQAA has evaluated independent schools belonging to several independent schools’ bodies, as well as a number of state schools and other organisations.

Umalusi is a statutory body which prescribes requirements for accreditation and quality assurance. It is mandatory for independent schools to comply with these requirements. For this reason, independent school associations normally ensure that member schools are accredited by, or are in the process of becoming accredited by Umalusi before they are accepted for membership.
Umalusi’s and IQAA’s quality assurance roles and processes are not in conflict, but complement each other. IQAA’s approach assists schools to develop self-evaluation and quality improvement capacity, while meeting statutory requirements.
