QUALITY SYSTEM AT AMEU – ISH
The quality system at AMEU – ISH enables the realisation of the Faculty’s vision, mission and objectives on the basis of documents and agreements, which are of key importance for systematic planning, organisation, implementation, reporting and improvements in all areas of the Faculty’s activity. It encompasses all the processes that are important for the quality functioning of the higher education institution and the quality implementation of study programmes.
In order to evaluate the achievements (reviews, analysis) and to prepare and implement measures for the further development of its activities, AMEU – ISH conducts self-evaluation aimed at continuous maintenance, promotion and improvement of the quality of educational and research work, as well as for providing rational bases for professional decision making and development planning and thereby providing a foundation for continuous quality improvement at AMEU – ISH.
Self-evaluation report is an integral element of the self-evaluation process; it includes the assessment of the situation and critical analysis, the analysis of strengths and weaknesses, as well as suggestions and recommendations for the elimination of deficiencies (corrective measures) and quality improvement.
With SWOT analysis (Strength, Weakness, Opportunity Threat) we recognise at AMEU – ISH positive and negative factors in the internal environment (strengths and weaknesses) and in the external environment (opportunities and threats) of the higher education institution, which enables more effective strategic planning and decision making. With PEST analysis, whose basic four factors are Political, Economic, Socio-cultural and Technological environment, AMEU – ISH aims to identify external factors that are AMEU – ISH important and could affect the operations and strategic -developmental position of AMEU – ISH, but AMEU-ISH has no direct influence on it.
At AMEU – ISH, the Quality Committee operates as the working body of the Senate AMEU – ISH. The Quality Commission is composed of at least four members, two of which are representatives of higher education teachers, associates and scientific staff, one is a student representative proposed by the student council and one is a representative of professional and administrative staff.
