UN TOURISM.TedQualUN Tourism.TedQual is a UN Tourism.Themis Foundation programme whose main objective is to improve the quality of the tourism education, training and research programmes. For this purpose, evaluation criteria– universally applicable to any institution – have been defined to seek, among other things, to measure the efficiency of their academic system, as well as their degree of incorporation of the tourism industry and students needs to those programmes.
To this end, in 1998, the UN Tourism Education and Training Department and the UN Tourism.Themis Foundation created what is now the fundamental pillar of the Programme: the UN Tourism.TedQual Certification System, which is composed of a series of evaluation criteria - universally applicable to any tourism education, training and research programme - that makes it possible to measure the effectiveness of the pedagogical system as well as to which extent are covered the needs of the tourism sector, civil society and the students in such programmes. The UN Tourism.TedQual Programme also relies on other pillars, such as the UN Tourism.TedQualNetwork, a platform for promotion and the exchange of knowledge and experiences among the UN Tourism.TedQual Institutions that has made it possible to create two sub-programmes: the UN Tourism.TedQual Exchange programme and the UN Tourism.TedQual Mentoring programme.For further information, please contact us via
