Certification of further education establishments
(The revised standard eduQua:2021 is expected to be enacted in 2021 and put into effect at the beginning of 2022. The transition period for the existing eduQua certificates is three years from the effective date.)


Lifelong learning is more in vogue than ever before. If learning services of a high standard are to be provided, then it is absolutely imperative that they cater to the needs of the customers and meet specific criteria recognised in the sector. The national eduQua scheme is officially recognised throughout Switzerland. Further education establishments which hold the certificate have proved that they satisfy the criteria and meet the minimum standard defined by eduQua in respect of further education services.


eduQua is a means of fulfilling official requirements (public money allocated to certified institutions only) and paves the way to a quality service with a quality mindset.
