PRINCIPLES

The aim of this policy is to provide the rationale and architecture for all QA guidelines issued by QQI. All QA guidelines issued by QQI will have regard to this policy. This policy was originally published in December 2014 and was revised in April 2016 following consultation.

In summary, the policy explains:

  • What we mean by 'Quality Assurance'
  • What QA guidelines are and how they should be used
  • The overarching principles which will apply to all QA guidelines
  • The rationale for developing a suite of guidelines for different sectors and topics

The policy also lists principles to assist providers in developing the internal QA procedures. These principles should underpin providers' approaches to developing their internal QA systems for education and training, research and related services.
