NAAC – Accreditation & Assessment
NAAC certification is a measure to evaluate and then guarantee a standard of education provided in higher institutions across the nation. The University Grant Commission (UGC) has issued a decree stipulating that every university and faculty must get certification by the council called NAAC (National Assessment and Accreditation Council).
NAAC accreditation focuses on improving the quality parameter of education.
Unlike the traditional educational system, NAAC aims to improve the overall development of students by helping them inculcate skills & knowledge via their education.
Institutions with NAAC accreditation fall under the category of institutions that offer “Quality Education” to students. Therefore, institutions that aim to maximize the student learning outcomes by ensuring the best practices must try to attain NAAC accreditation.
Purpose of NAAC Accreditation
The main purpose of the National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC) for conducting accreditation in colleges, and higher education institutes is to create understanding about the status of education quality among the institutes.
The NAAC body itself creates the set of standards that can be referred by the educational institutes to check if they are eligible to apply for NAAC accreditation. It provides access to funding programs by federal and state. Further, it maintains private sector confidence among the institutes and helps in the easy transfer of student credits.
