One of Escola Superior de Dança (ESD) [Higher School of Dance] challenges involves developing a quality culture across all sectors and players in academic life toward improvement in the educational process.

Quality Policy

In accordance with the Instituto Politécnico de Lisboa (IPL) [Polytechnic Institute of Lisbon] Quality Regulation, the Quality Assurance policy "corresponds to a commitment to IPL's continuous improvement, on the part of its organic units and the involvement of everyone working in it and for it, in outlining and meeting goals of Quality Culture."

In compliance with the guidelines of IPL's Office of Quality Management, the ESD's Office of Quality Management was created, and the Internal Quality Assurance System was implemented, based on a set of practices and procedures that support implementing the institutional strategy and ensuring the fulfilment of set goals, with a prospect for continuous improvement.
