If you are a teacher or tutor in a school, in the first instance please contact the person with responsibility for overseeing QQI activities in your school who can then follow the steps below:

  • I want to apply for validation of a programme:

Contact your regional support officer for a programme information form

Once completed, forward the form to your regional support officer who will check it for accuracy, for example, award codes, combination of components, appropriate credit value, programme descriptor/module developed and available etc.

FESS will then forward the form to QQI

QQI will then update the relevant section of the provider's QBS page

You will then make an application for validation, via the QBS

Once proof of validation by QQI is presented to your regional support officer, FESS can release the programme information to you

  • I want to add a new programme module to an already validated programme:

In specific circumstances, it may be possible to add a programme module to an already validated programme. The following conditions apply:

1. This programme has been validated by QQI for use by your school/provider

2. The programme module is appropriate to the purpose of the major award

3. By adding the programme module/s it constitutes a change of less than 20% of the overall programme

4. Your school notifies and agrees this change with QQI prior to delivery of the amended programme. You may do this by completing this form. Once you have received confirmation from QQI that this programme module has been validated please contact your regional support officer who will forward the appropriate programme module to you.

Note: However if the programme module you wish to add has already been validated for your provider, as part of another programme, then it is not necessary to agree this addition with QQI.
