QQI – Quality and Qualifications Ireland
As part of our wide range of training services and commitment to quality we have developed our services to include modules accredited by QQI. A further education and training (FET) award enables active participation in social, cultural and economic life and promotes continuous access to on-going learning.
Achieving a QQI qualification provided by the INOU will create further awareness around welfare rights issues and the impact of unemployment on a person's ability to participate fully and equally in society. It will allow participants to work with clients more confidently having increased their knowledge and competence.
We also provide group work, presentation and evaluation skills through our Training and Evaluation programme, formerly Train the Trainer, which is also accredited by QQI.
What is QQI?
