  • International Organisation for Standardization (ISO) • introduction of international, standardised certification procedures like ISO 9001:2000 alone to not guarantee quality assurance European Foundation for Quality Management (EFQM) • Focuses its attention on establishing the ways and means to objectively assess the mechanisms organisations have in place to deliver their strategy International Certification Standards vs. Local Quality Management Standards (2)
  • Pragmatic Approach – Local certification and Auditing of ALMM Providers • Licensing can be delegated to outsourced competence centres • Several conditions to become a licensing centre • CES use of independent, external advisors and consultants for managemet if licencing • Several conditions for being licensed as ALMM provider by a licensing centre • Provision of detailed information by ALMM providers applying for a licence for PWD; special attention given to the qualification and experience of the director • broader approach possible when checking the quality of ALMM providers for PWD

Conditions to become a licensing centre are: • existence of adequate organisational capacities to implement certification procedures in the ALMM sector addressed to PWD; • qualified staff with relevant technical knowledge in certification/licensing procedures • economic independence: no conflict of interests, i.e. complete economic separation between licensing centre and ALMM providers for PWD • capacity to use guidelines and recommendations from the advisory board of the CES or other relevant organisations at county level • the licensing centre itself applies an internationally recognized quality management system • the existence of a elaborated procedures on how to deal with complaints from either ALMM providers or participants enrolled in ALMM programmes.
  • NEW CES or other relevant county level organisation organises, manages and supervises the procedures for the licensing of licensing centres. doing so, the employment service uses independent, external advisors and consultants. Any licensing centre may only be licensed by the employment service for up to a certain period and the license and certification needs to be renewed. ALMM providers offering active labour market measures for PWD can ask for public funding through the CES only if they are certified ex-ante by a licensing centre.
  • NEW conditions for being licensed as ALMM provider by a licensing centre are: - complete official information about owners, corporate address, legal form, charter, etc. of the ALMM provider • detailed information on the technical infrastructure, facilities and materials • relevant information to show the competence of the ALMM provider to implement ALMM courses and/or other active labour market measures in a professional way meeting certain standards as defined by relevant authorities • relevant information to show adequacy of applied methods UPDATED! • compliance of contractual agreements between ALMM provider and participants with minimum legal standards (consumer protection)
  • NEW ability to collaborate with employers, companies and industrial associations and participate in labour market conferences • cooperation with the CES and other relevant organisations at county level • capacity to collect and evaluate data from labour market analysis reports • staff and the qualification of the latter to implement active labour market measures for PWD which are in line with information provided by labour market analysis reports • success rates in previous active labour market measures (how many unemployed participants found a new sustainable employment in the first labour market?) • assessment of the quality of previous active labour measures given by participants.
