QQI Quality Assurance Policies

 

Harvest is committed to delivering the highest standards of education in line with our ethos of continuous improvement & transparency to ensure that we offer the best learning opportunities.

We are also committed to creating, preserving and monitoring a quality assurance system.

Our QAS serves to develop, monitor, review and improve the services we offer. This ensures fairness, transparency, accuracy and consistency in the teaching, learning and assessment of learners and a learner centric approach.

The QAS was updated to reflect the statutory requirements of the Qualifications and Quality Assurance (Education and Training Act) 2012 and the subsequent guidelines published by Quality and Qualifications Ireland (QQI) in 2016. The policies, procedures and additional guidelines contained in the QAS apply to all education and training activities.
