education standards uk
The Information Standards Board (ISB) for education, skills and children’s services is the overarching authority and governing body for the management and assurance of data and information standards in these sectors. It is jointly sponsored by the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills and Department for Education.
Information standards are necessary to allow people and systems to exchange and re-use information. ISB aims to develop a definitive set of standards through stakeholder consensus and to support their implementation by ensuring developments are shared effectively and lessons are learnt. An xsd file for the ISB XML Schema has been produced.
The standards and requirements are organised around five themes. Some requirements – what an organisation must do to show us they are meeting the standards – may apply to a specific stage of education and training.
Promoting excellence: standards for medical education and training sets out ten standards that we expect organisations responsible for educating and training medical students and doctors in the UK to meet.

The Education Digital Standards will assist schools to understand, manage and implement their digital environment, by themselves or with their IT support partner.

High quality teaching, differentiated for individual pupils is the first step in responding to pupils who have or may have SEN. The MCS are a suite of documents to inform and steer your SEN practice.
Central to the work of assuring standards and quality is UK Quality Code for Higher Education (The Quality Code) which sets out the expectations all providers of UK higher education are required to meet. It gives all higher education providers a shared starting point for setting, describing and assuring the academic standards of their higher education awards and programmes and the quality of the learning opportunities they provide. The Quality Code has three Parts, on academic standards, academic quality and information about higher education provision. Each of these is subdivided into Chapters covering specific themes. The Quality Code is the core reference point used in all QAA review activity:
The QAA (Quality Assurance Agency) develops and maintains key documents that are used by higher education providers to help them meet UK expectations about standards and quality. This work is done through close collaboration with the higher education sector.
These Practice Educator Professional Standards (PEPS) set out requirements for practice educators at two stages, commensurate with the different levels of complexity and responsibility in teaching, assessing and supervising social work degree students.
