“GRACE has been selected to receive the Award in the Gold Category, International Arch of Europe”
GRACE has been selected to receive the International Arch of Europe (IAE) Award in the Gold category at the International BID Quality Convention which will take place in Frankfurt, Germany, on Saturday, July 1st.

The IAE Selection Committee used, as a basis, the criteria contained in the QC100 Total Quality Management Model which, in conjunction with BID’s Quality Mix technology, will strengthen your position of leadership and help you to improve the growth and visibility of your organization.

In the conventions carried out by BID during the past 10 months in the emblematic cities of Paris, London, Madrid, Geneva, Frankfurt and New York, companies and organizations from 121 countries were the protagonists. During that period, those participating leaders and experts in quality and excellence submitted their votes for those candidacies presented.

At the Frankfurt Convention, BID will also present a seminar led by a panel of qualifies professionals in the field of Quality Theory and Practice on topics of particular interest to the specific sectors of award winners.

The International IAE Convention will take place in Frankfurt on June 30th and July 1st, 2017, with the award presentation being held at the spectacular Theatre Convention Hall, facing the Main River, in the historical zone of Frankfurt and near the financial sector. Delegates of the award-winning businesses, organizations, universities and educational institutions will participate along with other colleagues.

Upon receiving the IAE Award in Frankfurt, GRACE will join a select group of previous BID award recipients, strengthening its own prestige as a result.

GRACE Partnership with School in Dubai
As GRACE excellently performs its duty nationwide, United International Private School, a school in Dubai entrusted the company to be their partner in giving their clients an outstanding service that will help them in assessment and evaluation of curriculum.

The successful partnership between UIPS and GRACE is fulfilled by the use of GRACE’s instruments such as Performance Assessment of Standards and Skills (PASS) and Readiness Assessment for Senior High (RASH).

 

GRACE and UNESCO Partnership
GRACE was chosen by UNESCO as its partner to do a country study about the culture of testing in the Philippines. This study aimed to better understand the influence of the ‘socio-cultural’ to the ‘culture of testing’ and its effects and significance to the progress of education. The research had four targets. First, the societal pressures of studying to the student, second, policies and practices in testing, third, importance of assessment in learning and last, recommendations to improve the education in the country. GRACE conducted surveys, interviews and focus-group discussions (FGD) to collect data. Participants were selected teachers, parents and students from different public and private schools nationwide.

This study was a successful story of partnership between the two organizations and definitely would not be last research that they would be working on together, since GRACE and UNESCO shared the same vision, which is to enhance the education and learning of the youth.
