This summer, EQUASS finished phase one of a programme to support Bizlink, a disability service provider in Singapore, in their implementation of EQUASS Assurance.
EQUASS expert Michael Crowley visited the Bizlink offices in Singapore in order to facilitate a consensus meeting with their representatives in July of 2013, providing a profile of Bizlink's performance against each criterion of EQUASS Assurance.
Bizlink is a Singaporean non-profit provider for vocational assessment, job placement and sheltered workshop services, and they have been active since 1985. Its vocational assessment division decided in 2012 to go for the EQUASS Assurance certification, and EQUASS provided a plan for the implementation of the quality assurance model, with an audit by the end of 2014.
This would be the first EQUASS certification outside of Europe.
