The Quality Assurance system is designed to ensure the highest possible standards of academic excellence are applied to the design and delivery of academic programmes and the operation of the support services throughout the institute.
The necessity for a robust Quality Assurance system is not only to meet regulatory requirements but support and advance the Mission Statement as set out in the current Strategic Pan 2017 – 2022:
“Advancing economic, social and environmental sustainability through education, innovation and engagement, producing graduates who are innovative, confident and a capable of leading the development of the region and beyond”.
Effective management of the Quality Assurance activities is a complex blend of regulation, policy development, procedural knowledge, quality culture, stake holder engagement and continuous quality enhancement.
All institute staff and students are involved in the achievement of academic excellence.
The organisation has a quality manual, policies, procedures, guidelines and other documents in place to ensure its programmes are developed, validated and monitored in accordance with the requirements of the Standards and Guidelines for Quality Assurance in the European Higher Education Area (ESG)2015, the Quality and Qualifications Act 2012 and the QQI Core Statutory Guidelines.
