Programmes and Awards Executive Committee (PAEC)

Purpose

The PAEC is part of the governance structures of QQI that have been agreed by its Board.  This committee ensures programmes and awards (recognised within the National Framework of Qualifications) are appropriate and consistent.

The committee consists of members of the QQI executive and is chaired by our CEO. The decisions and recommendations made by the committee are usually informed by external panels and the outcomes of QQI monitoring and review activities.

Decisions will not be communicated prior to the formal email. If you have a query on the status of your application following this period of 5 days after the PAEC, please submit it using QHelp, quoting the QBSPG code for an application for a programme leading to a CAS award or the programme title for applications in respect of other programmes.
