Quality Warranty System (SGIC) in the universities is one of the key elements in the construction of the European Higher Education Area sits (EEES). The RD 1.393/2007, of 29 October, which establishes the planning of official university education, incorporates the Quality Assurance Systems as an essential part of the new curriculum.
Escuela de Turismo de Santa Cruz de Tenerife, attached to the University of La Laguna, according to agreement signed between the two institutions in April 2010 elmes, is committed to impart the teachings of the degree of tourism of the ULL, where quality is a priority and is committed to put in place the means that will ensure that teaching is fully geared to achieving and maintaining the satisfaction of the needs and expectations of the students.
According to the procedure designed by the National Agency for Quality Assessment and Accreditation (ANECA), the accreditation of an Official Teaching of Degree or Master is articulated based on several criteria of quality; one of them is the Guarantee Internal Quality System, which is also a shaft which supported the rest of criteria. The implementation of an internal quality auditing involves a system of collection of information, review and improvement of aspects such as:
- Objectives of the plan of study
- Policies and procedures for admission
- Planning of teaching
- Development of the teaching and assessment of students
- Actions to guide the student
- Academic staffing
- The education services and resources
- Learning outcomes
In addition, there must be consultation procedures that allow you to collect information from alumni, employers, or other social groups, about the employability of graduates, acquired training (knowledge, skills and abilities) and professional profiles and training needs.
For this purpose, the Escuela de Turismo de Santa Cruz de Tenerife is elaborating its SGIC, from which will emerge documents as the Manual of the SGIC and the procedures Manual of the SGIC.
Part of this work is articulated through the Teaching Innovation Project, recently awarded by the Vice-rectorship of Institutional Quality and Innovation Professor of the University of La Laguna, called Design and Implementation of Internal Quality Guarantee System: its adaptation to the Escuela Universitaria de Turismo de Santa Cruz (EUTSC).
