Quality and Qualifications Ireland (QQI) have put out a Call for Tenders for the evaluation of the overall comparability of the two major award types at Level 6 in the Irish National Framework of Qualifications (NFQ)/Level 5 on the European Qualifications Framework (EQF):
• the Advanced Certificate (AC); and
• the Higher Certificate (HC)
This request for tenders is the first stage of a two-phase project to review these award-types and their effectiveness in differentiating further education and training (FET) from higher education and training (HET) as originally intended.
The closing date for receipt of tenders is Friday 31st January, at 12 noon (GMT).
Further details are available on QQI's website.
