Sector-Specific QA Guidelines

QQI has developed a range of QA guidelines which are specific to certain sectors.  These sector-specific guidelines are to be regarded as a supplement to the Core QA Guidelines. They add to the Core QA Guidelines by addressing specific responsibilities of the sector or institutions they refer to. They are designed to capture the varying relationships we have with the different groups of providers and the standing that those provider groups are afforded by virtue of their position as reflected in the legislation.  The published guidelines include:

Sector-Specific Quality Assurance Guidelines for Independent/ Private Providers

Sector- Specific Quality Assurance Guidelines for Designated Awarding Bodies

Sector- Specific Quality Assurance Guidelines for Institutes of Technology

Sector-specific Quality Assurance Guidelines for Education and Training Boards (ETBs)
