primary goal of accreditation is to make sure that
educational material offered by any educational institution
or professional individual meets
satisfactory levels of quality and pre-set standards.
Accrediting agencies are organizations (or agencies)
that set working standards for educational or
professional colleges, universities and degree programs,
keep a check on whether those standards are met, and
publicly announce their findings.
Accreditation is a voluntary and
not-for-profit process. Accreditation of an educational
material ensures that it is operating according to the
set principles and is meeting the required standards for
an educational institution. Accreditation also ensures
that the institution is operating as per the criteria
and standards of quality of education and is meeting the
benchmark set by the international accreditation
agencies and professional learning commissions.
If an institution or individual is accredited and
recognized from a reputable accreditation agency, that
ensures that the institution or individual is offering a
quality of education and its materials are recognized
and accepted worldwide. It guarantees that the
educational standards of the accredited institution
would not weaken, which helps strengthen the institute’s
credibility and wide recognition.
