Annual Dialogue Meetings

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.​


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

  • The current operating context for each institution

  • The 2014/15 Annual Institutional Quality Report (where completed)

  • Consultation and approval of QA procedures

  • General updates about current QQI projects
