What We Do

QQI is the state agency responsible for promoting quality and accountability in education and training services in Ireland.

QQI Awards

A QQI award lets prospective employers and educational institutions know a particular level of knowledge, skill and competence has been achieved in an area of study or training.

Quality Assurance of Education and Training

By promoting accountability, openness and transparency, quality assurance processes help ensure that the qualification awarded at the end of a programme is credible and trustworthy.

The Qualifications System

The qualifications used in Ireland's education and training system are described through the NFQ, a 10-level framework ranging from literacy qualifications through to doctoral degrees.
