    Schools today are vastly different from their ‘two century old’ ancestors. Globalization and the digital revolution are heralding an era of ‘classrooms without boundaries’ threatening the teacher dominated iterative schooling format. Skyrocketing parental expectations and competition amongst schools demand greater efficiency and accountability from the school management and teachers, as never before!

    With the growing tendency to speak of education as a service industry and its members as customers, Quality Consciousness in Education has come to stay. This calls for a shift in perception and practice. Educational institutions are challenged to reorganize themselves to create environments that are based on Total Quality Management principles and to adopt best practices. A scientifically aligned Teaching – Learning and Resource Management System optimizes resources, promotes greater efficiency in teaching and ensures better learning.

    Therefore, in today’s environment, a well-designed, scientifically developed academic edifice that complements an infrastructure that would ensure the holistic development of students is critical for any school’s success!

    Be it a new beginning (school start-up) or school improvement, Osmosys® brings much value to the task on hand with training and expertise in Quality Systems and Audit.

    Osmosys® offers a series of Management,Quality Consulting and Audit programmes including consultancy for ISO 9000-2000
