The IVET Quality Mark and the IVET Enhanced Quality Mark recognise Values-based Education at its very best.

Our Quality Mark schools are centres of values-based learning and teaching, supportive relationships, high levels of emotional intelligence, resilience and wellbeing.

The Quality Marks are administered by the International Values-based Education Trust (IVET).

 

 

IVET Quality Mark

P1050444

The IVET Quality Mark is an independent certification that a school practises VbE effectively. Seeking the Quality Mark helps schools to focus on the effectiveness of their values provision. It is an opportunity for celebrating excellent work and also identifying possible ways forward.

The steps to applying for the IVET Quality Mark are set out below:

 

  • Step 1
    Complete the IVET Self-Assessment Audit Tool. This helps the school to assess how well its procedures and practices are focused towards values modelling and values teaching, and will steer it towards gathering the evidence needed for the audit.
 
  • Step 2
    Contact Us to arrange an audit for your school. A Quality Mark Auditor will make arrangements with you for a visit.
    During the audit, the VbE Consultant/Auditor will draw the school's attention to any recommendations or suggestions to help increase the impact of VbE at the school. They will report the key findings of the audit at the end of the visit. A written report is sent to the school a short while later with certificates and logos. The school will be listed as a Quality Mark school on the VbE website and become a hub school to inspire others.

Enhanced IVET Quality Mark
 

The Enhanced VbE School Quality Mark recognises an existing Quality Mark school's more profound and wide-ranging use of Values-based Education in improving the quality of provision and practice for pupils across the school or setting.

 

It embraces the criteria outlined for the Values-based Education Quality Mark but also provides further challenge for those schools that wish to demonstrate unprecedented and leading practice in this field.

 

It does this by recognising and acknowledging:

 

  • The continuation and further development of outstanding practice as a Values-based school.
  • The furtherance of the school's commitment to Values-based Education as a transformational approach to schooling and improvement.
  • High aspirations of a culture of continuous improvement.
  • Commitment to creativity and innovation in the pursuit of excellence for all its pupils.
  • The school as a leader for local or nationally-based organisation in this field.
