It is my pleasure to invite you to attend the national two days residential workshop on National Board of Accreditation (NBA) on 30 & 31st October 2017 at JW Marriott SenapatiBapat road Pune.
In India the whole education edifice is rest on two things one is on access other is on quality. Accreditation is a seal of approval of quality.
NBA accreditation is tool for continuous improvement of programme outcome. This accreditation system benchmarks with the global best practices in accreditation like ABET and many more at the same time it is squarely relevant to the Indian education system. This accreditation reposes faith in the institutes as the assessment and evaluation would be undertaken by truly competent peer team and is completely transparent and fair. It is an unfailing system of surveillance on corrupt practices in education system and purely provides students centric system.
Now the question arises how to get fit for the accreditation as it is an extremely daunting task for any institute to quickly prepare on its own for the accreditation. it is also world known fact ‘ Rome can not build in one or two days’ in the sense any transformation is not an instant task. As we feel the burning sensation of this indispensable transformation with a feeling of empathy with the institute like us we intended to organize orientation workshop on NBA accreditation and this two day orientation programme designed. We are roping the best resources as a speaker to provide participants crystal clarity of NBA process which eventually make this process very simple to understand and implement in addition to this we also provide supportive literature in E-format for future references.
The clock would run indeed very fast. So, decide now rather today and ginger up your programme key faculty to seize the opportunity and avail the current relaxed conditions before it gets too late to orient about NBA.
Come and join us in such a niche learning platform which would act as a catalyst for transformation process.

Hosting City: Pune Known as the Oxford of the East the city of Pune has a rich legacy in education. And this legacy precedes the establishment of the Savitribai Phule Pune University (formerly known as the University of Pune and University of Poona) in the year 1949. Being the cultural capital of Maharashtra the city has always had an intrinsic connection with theatre, music, arts and literature and been a centre of learning and research in all fields. Pune is 560 m (1,840 ft) above sea level on the western margin of the Deccan plateau. It is on the leeward side of the Sahyadri mountain range, which forms a barrier from the Arabian Sea. It is a hilly city, with its highest hill, Vetal Hill, rising to 800 m (2,600 ft) above sea level. Just outside the city, the Sinhagad fort is at an altitude of 1,300 Meters(4,300 feet) Pune is 1,533 kilometers (953 mi) south of Delhi, 844 kilometers (524 mi) north of Bangalore, and 149 kilometers (93 mi) south-east of Mumbai by road. Pune usually enjoys a cool climate with a lush green environment. It is also one of the safest cities in India for people from all walks of life. Pune is home to best educational institutes and universities in India. Pune also has many theatres, parks, malls, sports clubs, restaurants, bars, etc. that add recreational value.

With the advent of liberalization, privatization and globalization, there is radical transformation in the Education system in India. However, Quality of Education and training being imparted in Technical and higher Educational system varies from excellent to poor, with some institutions comparing favorably with the best in the world and others not able to achieve even minimum standard of Quality. For improving quality and facilitate mobility of our students across the globe, Government of India took some steps. In 1986, Government of India came out with National Policy on Education. As a follow up of this policy statement, Government of India established two separate bodies namely National Board of Accreditation (NBA) through All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) and National Assessment & Accreditation Council (NAAC) through University Grants Commission (UGC) in the year 1994. Both the bodies provide accreditation to those institutions practicing prescribed Quality Assurance System and achieve specified level of Quality as per the criteria defined. While NBA focuses largely on the parameters that communicate the strength & weakness of a program, NAAC concentrates on Institutional Accreditation. NBA accreditation is also made mandatory for the engineering colleges. India is now a member of the elite 17-member group of permanent signatories. Washington Accord is an international accreditation agreement for Engineering Degrees among prominent nations of the world. The agreement is aimed at promoting mobility and quality assurance of engineers across international boundaries. The Accord requires member nations to ensure that the highest quality assurance standards in line with ABET are implemented in their technical and engineering programs. Government of India also conceived Technical Education Quality Improvement Program (TEQIP) to improve Quality of Technical Education suiting to current National & Global requirements. The present scheme of NBA accreditation is outcome based unlike in the past. NBA now follows the Outcome Based Education (OBE) model for accreditation of programmes offered by institutions. Once a program is accredited by NBA, it will have global acceptability and promotes students mobility along with enhancement in employability. The purpose and impact of accreditation goes far beyond quality assurance of an Institution/programme. Benefits of accreditation for institutions include ease of funding from various bodies, change of perceptions among all stakeholders, improvement of student enrollment both in terms of quality and quantity.
This training program is conceived to facilitate understanding of what constitutes Program Outcomes and how to formulate and achieve these. So, let’s join, “Movement for Quality Education”
