NAAC, or the National Assessment and Accreditation Council, focuses on students’ overall development by providing a culture in which they can hone their skills and gain knowledge through education. NAAC-accredited institutions are known for providing high-quality education. As a result, any college seeking to improve student learning outcomes must obtain NAAC accreditation.
The primary goal of establishing NAAC and accrediting HEIs is to assess the quality of education, infrastructure, teaching, research, and learning at colleges. NAAC accredited institutes receive the highest grades, meet the standards, and receive the most enrolment applications from students.
Education is a nation’s most important development pillar. As a result, the excellence and relevance of the institution’s programmes must be assessed. The method of improving quality, like every other aspect of educational practice, has a predefined set of measures. Colleges must identify and recognise additional requirements in order to meet international standards.
The role of NAAC accreditation is to bring out the best in every institution and to assist institutions in growing in areas such as research, innovation, student success, governance, and more.
