The QQI Re-engagement Fee- The case for a waiver for independently managed community education providers

View Online / Download

Summary

The AONTAS Community Education Network has called for a fee waiver for independently managed community education providers (legacy providers) for QQI re-engagement. The re-engagement process involves legacy providers having their Quality Assurance (QA) procedures approved by the QQI. QA approval means that the provider can offer QQI validated programmes leading to QQI awards. The issue that community education organisations have is the newly introduced fee for the re-engagement process, which may amount to €5,000.  Read this paper to learn more about this issue and support advocacy work to waive this fee for not-for-profit community education organisations.
