ISO 29993:2017 - Learning services outside formal education -- Service requirements


A globalized and fast-changing knowledge-based economy requires people to continue acquiring new skills and knowledge for their entire professional and private lives. The formal education system plays an important role in a country’s human resources development. However, it is not always effective and sufficient in terms of meeting the rapidly evolving needs of individuals and societies. Private providers of learning services have more flexibility to respond quickly to such needs. In addition, as the cross-border mobility of employment increases in the global economy, more and more private providers are expanding their international presence and providing learning services to learners beyond their national borders. ISO 29993 is intended to provide such private providers with a generic frame of reference for quality learning services.It is a service standard that specifies a set of minimum requirements for learning services outside formal education
