FETAC?
Further Education and Training Awards Council (FETAC) was the
statutory awarding body for further education and training in
Ireland.
FETAC made awards at levels 1 to 6 on the National Framework of
Qualifications (NFQ). These awards are now made by QQI.
The FET sector in Ireland is wider than the FETAC awards and
includes a myriad of other awarding bodies, some of which are
aligned to the NFQ.

QQI
• Quality and Qualifications Ireland (QQI) was established in
November 2012 by the amalgamation of the functions of the
Further Education and Training Awards Council (FETAC), the
Higher Education and Training Awards Council (HETAC), the
Irish Universities Quality Board (IUQB) and the National
Qualifications Authority of Ireland (NQAI).
•
QQI is the agency responsible for the National Framework of
Qualifications (NFQ) and the quality assurance of further and
higher education and training (including English language
