National Framework of Qualifications
The National Framework of Qualifications is standardisation of the qualifications system in Ireland. The Framework introduces a system of awards and helps to provide clarity to employers, learners and the public on the system of education and training in Ireland.
The National Framework of Qualifications is a system of 10 levels. Its transparent nature allows learners to compare and contrast qualifications, here in Ireland and Internationally. It assists employers in recognising and understanding the level and standard of qualifications.
IT Sligo offers courses that include each of the levels on the ladder below. The ‘ladder system’ enables students to progress from one qualification to the next level, right up to PhD level depending on academic achievements.
