Quality Assurance

Under the Qualification and Quality Assurance (Education and Training) Act 2012, IDS Further Education and Training (FET) was required to engage with QQI to develop and publish guidelines for the quality assurance of our programmes and services.

Since September 2022, IDS has an approved quality assurance agreement with Quality and Qualification (QQI) in respect of quality assurance procedures and policies of all our programmes leading to QQI Awards.

IDS Further Education and Training Quality Assurance team has responsibility for managing the development, implementation, evaluation and review of an effective, integrated Quality Assurance system for all our programmes and services.

In our Quality Assurance Manual, we have an integrated set of policies and procedures as informed by the requirements of QQI, and any new policies or procedures that have been developed to date are described in detail in the manual.
