QQI published a discussion document in 2017 titled ‘Review of QQI Award Standards: Approach and Schedule Discussion Paper’ referring to award standards at levels 1 to 9 of the National Framework of Qualifications (NFQ). It outlined the scope of review, posed general and specific questions about the review process and set a proposed schedule for reviews to take place.
Following both an online survey and workshops for Further Education and training and Higher Education and Training providers, the feedback from all sources has been consolidated into a report entitled 'Consolidated Feedback on Review of QQI Awards Standards'. It reflects the range of opinion, ideas and suggestions received. QQI is now planning the next steps for standards review and will publish details when finalised.
