QQI is recruiting a panel of experts for the validation of programmes leading to QQI awards

​QQI is launching a recruitment drive to establish panels of Subject Matter Experts and Report Writers for evaluating applications for validation of further education and training programmes and apprenticeship programmes.

QQI validates programmes of education and training and makes awards in the further education and training sector (for public and private providers of programmes). Validation is a regulatory process that in essence determines whether or not a particular QQI award can be offered in respect of a provider's programme of education and training.

To assist with this QQI is assembling two panels to call upon, as follows:

1. Subject Matter Experts Panel
    The appointed experts will be called upon to evaluate applications for validation by QQI of further education training programmes and apprenticeship programmes in 
    various fields of learning.

2. Report Writers Panel
    Those appointed to the panel will be required to write evaluation reports to publishable quality to support QQI quality assurance determinations.
This recruitment will be carried out by Sigmar Recruitment Consultants on behalf of QQI.  ​

Application closing date has been extended: 5pm on Monday 5 December 2016
