In April this year, ISASA conducted a survey, the purpose of which was to establish how ISASA member schools were coping with the Umalusi accreditation process. The survey gave us an indication of various stages of accreditation that schools were at, but more importantly it also gave us a good sense of different experiences that schools go through in fulfilling the Umalusi accreditation requirements.
Emanating from the various sentiments expressed by ISASA schools who completed the survey, ISASA deemed it necessary to put together documents that would assist schools in mining their way through the Umalusi accreditation process and requirements.
The following documents are available to schools:
List of policies required by Umalusi for accreditation purposes (This list has been compiled by the ISASA Policy Unit based on the Umalusi document: Guidelines for Conducting Self- Evaluation and Uploading the Required Evidence – Accreditation [E&A IS 5b] 2015.)
Outline of Activities for Umalusi Verification Site Visit (Umalusi document).
Experiences shared by one ISASA member school on an Umalusi accreditation site visit (ISASA document).
Guideline for preparation for Umalusi Site Visit – Criteria 1, 2 and 5 (Umalusi document).
Guideline for preparation for Umalusi Site Visit – Criteria 3 and 4 (Umalusi document).
