Vision, Mission and Values

QQI's Statement of Strategy 2019-2021 outlines a new Vision, Mission and Values for our organisation.

Our Vision

We are committed to working enthusiastically and purposefully towards a vision of Ireland that offers extensive and high-quality education and training opportunities, enabling learners to fulfil their potential through achieving qualifications that are widely valued nationally and internationally.

Our Mission

QQI sustains public confidence in the quality of education and training, promotes trust in the National Framework of Qualifications and drives a culture of continuous improvement by education and training providers.

Our Values

Our approach to our own work and how we work with our partners is governed by clear values and associated behaviours.

We believe we have a shared responsibility with others to ensure confidence in and continuous improvement of the quality of education and training. We believe that the attainment of our goals and objectives is best pursued collaboratively and constructively with our diverse set of partners and providers. We value collaborative effort for mutual benefit.

We are committed to working with objectivity and transparency. This underpins our decision-making and our policies, procedures and activities. These are evidence-based, informed by national and international good practice, and conducted in a manner which is openly transparent and engenders trust.

We are committed to making a difference to our partners, provides and our people. We value achievement and impact – the successful pursuit of goals and objectives which culminate in impacting positively and substantively on our operating environment.

We are committed to learning and innovation in our organisation to continuously improve our services.

We have developed four key priorities to help us fulfil our Mission:

Priority 1

Integrity of the National Framework of Qualifications: To develop, promote and protect the integrity of the National Framework of Qualifications.

Priority 2

Analysis and Impact: To analyse and demonstrate the impact of measures taken to improve the quality of education and training for the benefit of learners.

Priority 3

Collaboration and Engagement: To support a high-quality education and training system through mutually beneficial strategic partnerships.

Priority 4

Organisational Capacity: To build internal capacity to sustain, improve and communicate our performance.
