Celebrating 20 years of the NFQ – your stories and case studies


2023 marks a key milestone for the National Framework of Qualifications (NFQ). The Irish framework was the first of its kind in Europe and has become a cornerstone of the Irish qualifications system over the last twenty years. QQI has commissioned a report which will reflect on achievements to date as well as opportunities for the future. We are keen to hear perspectives and case studies from across the sector about the use and benefits of the NFQ over the years.

Please tell us your story about using or benefitting from the NFQ during the last 20 years. Submissions can be sent by email to obarry@qqi.ie.

Please note that submissions may be edited for clarity and length and may be grouped thematically. If you are open to being interviewed by the report writers, please indicate this in your submission. Submissions should be sent by 5pm on Friday 26th May. If you have any questions, please email obarry@qqi.ie.
