Quality Assurance in Adult Education and Training   

The Ministry of Education, Science and Culture is responsible for the evaluation and monitoring of educational institutions in the educational system in Iceland. The monitoring, evaluation and quality assurance in adult education is explained in the Act on Adult Education.

Every three years, the Minister of Education, Science and Culture is to deliver comprehensive reports to the Parliament on pre-primary, compulsory and upper secondary education. The reports explain schools' operation and activities, based on systematically gathered information, evaluation and research (both national and international). Education and training providers in adult education need to carry out a systematic internal evaluation of the quality of their activities and publish information about their quality control and plans for improvement.
