Any school subscribed to the app is eligible to apply for accreditation. To be eligible, a school has to be able to present a minimum of 20 students who role model World Class characteristics as evidenced by their app usage. What we are interested in is that a school’s students are typically World Class, across the board, before the school applies for accreditation. To do this, WCSQM will carry out a moderation of the student sample, to determine whether students have evidenced characteristics / completed framework areas to a World Class standard.
Our accreditation stages assess the accuracy of the in-school assessment, by testing the World Class characteristics of a selected student sample, in ‘real life’ and ‘real time.’ This is a unique opportunity for your students to demonstrate the World Class skills and competencies they have evidenced through use of the app, thereby proving their school is indeed World Class.
Visit the accreditation page for more information on what it means to be WCSQM accredited and how to apply.
School to school, student to student mentoring
If your school is considering applying for accreditation, you can request a mentoring service at any time without any commitment to undertaking the accreditation process.
Peer to peer mentoring – a school can request to partner with another school considering or confirmed as undertaking the accreditation process. Student teams from each school work in partnership, feeding back on the other school’s progress in developing World Class characteristics and sharing best practice. (This is a free service subject to a partner school being available to undertake the moderation process with you).
WCSQM lead practitioner mentoring – you can request for your students to be mentored by students from a WCSQM lead practitioner school. These are founder schools with experience in using the app and whose students model WCSQM characteristics. Their team of WCSQM ambassador students can mentor your students, role modelling World Class characteristics and sharing evidence examples. (This service incurs an administration fee the majority of which will go towards supporting the lead practitioner school. See pricing page for more details).
