Dialogue meetings between QQI and both the Designated Awarding Body (DABs) and Institute of Technology (IoT) sectors form part of the external quality assurance (QA) framework in Ireland.  These meetings provide an opportunity for both parties to consider a range of issues relating to the development of the QA infrastructure that will clarify and define the relationship between an institution and QQI as each sector evolves. Sometimes the Dialogue meeting schedule can overlap with the CINNTE Main Review Visit schedule for individual institutions.  When this happens, precedence is given to the Main Review Visit and the dialogue meeting is rescheduled.


The table below lists the most recent round of dialogue meetings.  Items discussed in this round of meetings included:


• The 2016/17 Annual Institutional Quality Report 

• The current operating context for each institution

• Consultation on QA policies and procedures

• System-wide developments 

• General updates and current QQI projects
