QUALITY ASSURANCE FRAMEWORK
WHO ARE QQI
QQI (Quality and Qualifications Ireland) is an independent state agency responsible for promoting quality and accountability in education and training services in Ireland.
To understand more about QQI and your journey through a progressive and flexible framework, this information is extremely helpful. Contact our Career coach to help you understand how you can progress though this framework professionally and do what you are passionate about doing.
QQI is responsible for promoting the National Framework of Qualification (NFQ). The NFQ is a 10-level framework that many different types and sizes of qualification are offered by different Irish education providers. The National Framework of Qualifications (NFQ) provides a structure to compare and contrast the level and standard of different qualifications. This helps you to make informed decisions about your qualification choices and to consider progression opportunities available to you. The framework divides courses into 10 different levels.
