Student­Progression­and­your­Qualification

All our courses offer certification under the newly established Quality and Qualifications Ireland
(QQI). QQI replaces the National Qualification Authority of Ireland (NQAI), Further Education and
Training Awards Council (FETAC), the Higher Education and Training Awards Council (HETAC), and
the functions of the Irish Universities Quality Board (IQUB).

QQI operates a National Framework of Qualifications (NFQ) making it easier to compare the standard
of courses and awards. The Framework consists of ten levels based on specified standards of
knowledge, skill and competence. These standards define the outcomes to be achieved by learners
seeking to gain awards at each level. This framework is designed so that different levels of
qualifications can be commonly recognised at home and abroad. Progression routes are clearly
outlined. All awards at Sligo CFE are recognised at either Level 5 or 6 on the NFQ.
