ISO 9001 In an educational institution

My organization is in the process of adopting ISO 9001. My question is, if my organization is an educational institution what ISO should we adopt 1st, is it ISO 9001 or ISO 21001? Thank you.

What does 9001 and 21001 mean? And how did they come up with the numbers?

Unfortunately, I have no experience of working with ISO 21001. Why is your organization deciding to implement a management system? If it is as a marketing tool I recommend ISO 9001 just because is the most well known in the general public. However, even working to get ISO 9001 certification, I recommend using ISO 21001 as a guideline.

ISO published in 2003, IWA 2:2003 - Quality management systems - Guidelines for the application of ISO 9001:2000 in education, a document updated in 2007 by IWA 2:2007 - Quality management systems -- Guidelines for the application of ISO 9001:2000 in education. However, as far as I know this 2007 guideline has been widrawn.

ISO published in 2018, ISO 21001:2018 - Educational organizations -- Management systems for educational organizations -- Requirements with guidance for use. ISO 21001:2018 is a management system standard that is partially aligned with ISO 9001:2015 for quality managent systems.
