On 18 November 2015, QQI launched its QQI Award brand at an event in the Aviva Stadium, Dublin.
Learners representing achievements across all ten levels of the NFQ were presented with commemorative awards by the Minister of Education and Skills, Jan O’Sullivan, T.D.
Speaking at the launch, the Minister said:
'the QQI Award plays a pivotal role in the quality and standards of education and training. Today marks a major step in promoting a wider understanding and recognition of the QQI Award and its positioning on the NFQ. I would like to congratulate each of our award recipients on their achievements and wish them every success in the future.'
