Provider Quality Assurance

Quality Assurance

The Qualifications and Quality Assurance (Education and Training) Act 2012 obliges QQI to issue guidelines for providers to inform their development of Quality Assurance procedures.

QQI is currently working with the Department of Education and Skills (DES) funded Providers to finalise these guidelines.

The following resources have been developed by FESS to support this process. 


An FET Forum has also been established to facilitate ETBI and QQI collaborate on operational, developmental and strategic matters. This ETBI QQI Collaborative FET Forum includes representatives from the 16 ETBs, QQI, ETBI and FESS. The Forum provides a framework and mechanisms through which representatives from these bodies can work together and share information. Further information on this initiative can be accessed on the ETBI website

FESS continues to support DES funded providers in quality assurance related issues and developments.
