New report: QQI awards and related provision 2012-2022


The latest in the QQI Data Series has just been published as part of QQI’s celebration of its tenth anniversary.

In 'QQI awards and related provision - Looking back over the past 10 years. Responding to the changing needs of learners and the labour force – our role 2012-2021', we look back at QQI certification data for the past decade to reveal the trends and shifts in the demand for QQI awards and the related provision of programmes

We examine how provision has evolved over the decade and how some shifts in the demand for QQI awards are being driven by the needs of learners, policy and the labour market.

By analysing how the demand for QQI awards may be driven by a need to develop the workforce through upskilling or retraining, this report reveals the agility and capacity of providers relying on QQI as an awarding body to respond rapidly to the needs of occupations.

Of particular interest is how QQI qualifications are shown to be relevant not only for the initial vocational educational training of school leavers but also for those already in the workforce who find themselves unqualified or underqualified in an constantly evolving jobs market.
