Quality Management System
A Quality Management System is established taking into account the scope of the organization (activities or objectives for which the company was originally founded), but also establishes compliance with applicable legal requirements, which is why the Colegio Gimnasio del Norte included within its quality management system processes such as, Restaurant, Transportation , Extracurricular Activities and all kinds of processes that involve service delivery and customer satisfaction.
The restaurant complies with Decree 3075 of 1997, which regulates all activities that generate risk factors for food consumption, applied to food processing, equipment, utensils and food handler staff. The activities are developed under the basic principles and practices of hygiene in the handling, preparation, processing, packaging and storage of food for human consumption, in order to ensure that products are produced in sanitary conditions and reduce the inherent risks.
Our transportation service ensures transportation to school, surpassing legal transportation requirements, considering everyday pre-operational inspection of the vehicle, and guaranteeing specific weekly inspections of the maintenance management of each.
In the case of Extracurricular Activities, we strive to guarantee the quality of outsourced services by evaluating and tracking each of the companies and employees, to ensure compliance with our standards, so that the results and satisfaction of our students are assured.
The Ministry of Education in order to ensure fairness in the certification of educational institutions, requested the certification authorities of the certified institutions be not differentiated by bilingualism or International programs.
Bureau Veritas Certification, our certification body, is accredited by two international organizations, UKAS (United Kingdom Accreditation Service) accreditation body in the UK, and ANAB (ANSI -ASQ National Accreditation Board) accreditation group in the United States.
As part of this accreditation Bureau, Veritas can generate certificates with international scope not limited to the requirements of the Ministry of National Education. Within the quality management system, there are many procedures in place to control and ensure that the above processes, Bilingualism, International Baccalaureate and other activities involved, are checked and evidenced as compliant with our certification and that of the UKAS and ANAB as referenced above.
