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.
We accept applications for the validation of programmes of education and training - leading to QQI awards at all levels in the National Framework of Qualifications;- in a range of educational contexts (e.g.
further education and training (FET), higher education and training (HET), professional education and apprenticeship, English language teaching (ELT), and research education and training); and- involving diverse modes (including collaborative, transnational and e-learning).
We established new policies and criteria for validation and published them in May 2016. The new policies and criteria will commence with immediate effect for Apprenticeship programmes leading to QQI awards at NFQ levels 5 to 9 and English language teaching (ELT) programmes leading to QQI awards and from (or sooner where arranged) for programmes of higher education and training leading to QQI awards.
By validating the content, management systems and support procedures of your current management development programmes you can be sure they meet our stringent quality requirements.

Monitoring If the training program is validated, the company must provide a monitor or proctor to be present during the training to insure that the training complies with the guidelines of the Validated Training Program Agreement.
