The RCQE objectives also intersect with those of AROQA whose main objective is to improve the quality of education in general with a special focus on the Arab world. AROQA provides many services including quality assurance for educational institutions, consulting and capacity building in education quality and setting up the foundations for ensuring, managing and controlling quality in education in accordance with national and international standards.
 UNESCO – Regional Center seeks to disseminate and promote a culture of quality and excellence in the educational institutions in the Arab region through the provision of technical advisory research and development programs as well as contributing to supporting education in general.
