Imbibing the culture of quality across all levels, Quality Circles are formed by students, teachers and faculty members in order to identify current problems, provide solutions and monitor results for continual improvement.
The Global Centre for Education Excellence (GCEE) has been actively training and encouraging the solution of small problems through the formation of Quality Circles, also called ARCs – Action, Research, and Consultancy.
Some successful examples include:
- Students QC (Class 7 & 8) – Students presented a Quality Circle, ‘An Enemy called Average’ in the Team Excellence Competition at the Asia Pacific Quality Organization (APQO) convention held at Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia in November 2014
- Students’ QC (Class 8) – Monitored the traffic congestion during peak hours at the campus, identified and implemented solutions which resulted in smoother traffic flow
- Teachers’ QC – Reduced overall usage of paper in the school by 33%
