QQI recognises the value of awards made by another awarding body where the awarding body is:
  • nationally recognised in its own country
  • operating a quality assured awarding process
The method by which recognition is given is through exemption from one or more appropriate minor award(s) where a learner is seeking a major award. An exemption cannot be requested by a learner directly. It must be submitted by a centre on behalf of the learner.
