Following the amalgamations of Co Meath VEC, Co. Louth VEC and one former SOLAS (FÁS) training centre, LMETB is re-engaging with QQI, the independent State agency responsible for promoting quality and accountability in education and training services in Ireland (for further information, see www.qqi.ie ).
QQI published Core Statutory Quality Assurance Guidelines in April 2016, followed by the Sector Specific Guidelines for ETBs in May 2017.
Following the amalgamation of Co. Meath VEC, Co. Louth VEC and 1 former SOLAS training centre, LMETB is currently operating under five legacy quality assurance agreements with QQI and in the process of developing new quality assurance policies and procedures for the amalgamated organisation. For QA policies and procedures specific to each LMETB centre under the legacy agreements, please contact the centre in question directly.
LMETB has, since its establishment in 2013, been operating under “legacy” quality assurance agreements, policies and procedures, but is now working on developing a common set of policies and procedures that will apply to all its services and centres. The resource documents associated with the legacy QA Agreements are listed below for information purposes:
