International Initiatives

​QQI's work is informed by a wide variety of European and international projects, initiatives, agreements and networks which aim to improve the quality of education and training across Europe and the world. 

We host and are the contact point in Ireland for a number of these initiatives.  Dissemination of information at national level is a key part of this function.
