This QQI Special Purpose Award in Training & Development is for anyone who wants to train professionally, or trains others as part of an existing role. Achieving this award will add credibility to your experience as a trainer, and put your skills on the map if you are new to training.
To achieve the Special Purpose Award, you must successfully complete 2 components - Training Needs Identification & Design and Training Delivery & Evaluation. These courses focus on a different element of the Training Cycle. Each component can also be taken as a stand-alone course if preferred.

When both components and their assessments are completed successfully, the QQI Special Purpose Award in Training and Development is achieved.
You don’t have to complete both components in any particular order, or attend one immediately after the other. It’s quite common – and beneficial – for our students to take a break between each module.

A QQI Special Purpose Award is comprised of more than one component. The components within the award are usually closely grouped around a specific subject or skill-set. In this case, the components are focused in the area of training skills.
As it takes added time, resources, and commitment to achieve an award, holding a Special Purpose Award adds extra respectability to your credentials as a trainer.
This QQI Training & Development Special Purpose Award will demonstrate your skill, credibility and competency as a trainer with potential employers.
Completing this award will build your confidence and assist you in developing your training design, delivery and evaluation abilities.
QQI (Quality and Qualifications Ireland) was set up to merge the separate agencies of FETAC, HETAC and NQAI.
This means that awards which were previously FETAC, have now been revised and established as new QQI awards.
If you want to achieve the Special Purpose Award, you must complete both components (courses + assessments) successfully.
However, if you are not working towards the Special Purpose Award and are interested in attending one component only, either course can be taken on a stand-alone basis.
If you successfully complete both components (courses) of the Special Purpose Award (Training Needs Identification & Design and Training Delivery & Evaluation) along with the relevant assessments, you will earn a QQI Special Award in Training and Development. The code for this award is 6S3372.
The answer to this question depends on your schedule, your goals, and your interests. If there is a Training Needs Identification and Design date coming up in the next few months, we recommend starting here.
However, Training Delivery and Evaluation runs more frequently, so if that helps you get started faster, it might be the right choice.
