QQI Courses: Quality and Qualifications Ireland is the national agency responsible for qualifications in Ireland

Our QQI Level 5 and Level 6 minor certification courses support those in employment, those who would like to upskill, develop back to work skills or those who want to start their own business. We prepare participants for jobs by providing the skills, knowledge, competence and confidence required to work in their chosen sector.  These minor 5 and 6 awards are recognised under the National Framework of Qualifiactions (NFQ) 

Our courses also prepare students for progression to further studies.  As successful students may apply through the Higher Education Links Scheme to a range of third-level courses once they have successfully completed 8 minor awards that make up a Major award.
