Progression to Higher Education
Progression is the process whereby learners may transfer from one programme of
education and training to another, where each programme is of a higher level than
the preceding one, as illustrated in the National Framework of Qualifications (NFQ)
diagram below.




Higher Education Links Scheme
This scheme facilitates the transfer of students who have achieved a QQI Level 5
award, and/or Level 6 advanced award, to third-level colleges throughout the country.

Learners who complete a major QQI award at Levels 5 and 6 are eligible to apply
through the CAO system for entry into participating courses in the QQI Higher
Education Links Scheme (HELS). A limited number of places are available, and
applicants are ranked according to results achieved in their QQI major award.

It is important to consult the appropriate Higher Education Institutes (HEIs) for
essential information about content of courses, entry requirements, duration, career
progression, etc.




                                                                                              7

    Important Points to Note
    »» Applicants must have obtained a full QQI major award. A component certificate will
       not suffice.
    »» Applications are made through the CAO, and must be submitted by 1st February.
    »» A full award may be accumulated over more than one year. However, some institutes
       and universities may require that awards be obtained over one year.
    »» Certain progression courses may have additional specific requirements.
    »» Applicants are advised at all times to confirm linked awards, any additional
       module requirements, and application processes with the Admissions Offices of the
       participating Higher Education institutes, or by visiting www.cao.ie
    »» Some Higher Education programmes require the achievement of specified
       component awards, specific grades in individual component awards, or additional
       awards, such as mathematics.
    »» Mature applicants who gain Recognition of Prior Learning must ensure they have a
       full award, as this is a necessity for progression.
    »» There is no automatic entitlement to a CAO place.


    Recognition and Accreditation
                               QQI was established in November 2012 through the
                               amalgamation of QQI, HETAC, IUQB and NQAI. The Awards
                               and Certification Unit in QQI now makes awards to learners
                               to all levels of the National Framework of Qualifications.

                               Every attempt has been made by Coláiste Íde to provide
                               current/anticipated award titles and course content on our
                               website and in this prospectus. It is possible, however, that
                               the published award titles and module titles may be altered as
                               this migration process evolves. Students need to familiarise
                               themselves with the appropriate award and module titles
                               prior to applying for courses at the college. If in any doubt,
                               applicants should consult the QQI.

                               Website www.qqi.ie or contact the College admissions
                               office directly. Coláiste Íde cannot be responsible for course
                               alterations that may be required by QQI as this transition
                               process evolves.
