Who Are QQI?

QQI (Quality and Qualifications Ireland) was set up to bring together the agencies of FETAC, HETAC and NQAI.

Therefore, courses we previously offered as FETAC Level 6 courses have been redesigned and improved to become QQI Level 6 certifications.

These Level 6 certifications are minor awards, placed on the National Framework of Qualifications (NFQ). Each minor award is worth 15 credits towards a major award.

We are also pleased to offer Special Purpose Awards, which combine complimentary skills and courses so that you can achieve a well-rounded certification that carries credibility and weight with clients and employers alike.

Where are these Train The Trainer courses run?

We run our Train The Trainer courses in a variety of nationwide locations including Dublin, Cork, Galway, Tralee and Limerick. These are open or public courses, available for anyone to attend.

Step 1. Training Needs Analysis

This information-gathering step is crucial to the success of any training programme.

Before beginning work on designing training, it’s important to explore the needs of your trainees. Our Training Needs Identification & Design Course will help you identify the right questions to ask and learn how to extract the right information. In other words, you will learn how to complete an effective Training Needs Analysis.

Step 2. Design

Once you have conducted a full Training Needs Analysis, the next step is to decide on training objectives. The design of your course will flow from these objectives. Design methodologies and developing course materials are both subjects covered on Training Needs Identification & Design.

Step 3. Deliver

After the first 2 stages of The Training Cycle, delivery skills come into play. During our Training Delivery & Evaluation Course, we take you through delivery skills, techniques and best practices.

Step 4. Evaluate

A trainer’s work doesn’t end once the course has been delivered. It’s always important to evaluate your own work and the effectiveness of the learning for your trainees. This final stage of The Training Cycle is covered during our Training Delivery & Evaluation course.
