The purpose of the QEP is to support schools in helping students succeed in their personal, educational and career plans. The QEP was designed to provide a common-core basic education, and hinges on the development of competencies by students, with the goal of using knowledge effectively in carrying out tasks and real-life activities. The QEP enables schools to help students deal with social change and participate actively in their learning.

The QEP is a tool that teachers use every day to carry out their tasks. It is also an essential guide for the school administration, staff and governing board.
