National Country Evaluation Report

VISKA project in Ireland

In Ireland, QQI (Quality and Qualifications Ireland) is an independent State agency responsible for promoting quality and accountability in education and training services in Ireland. QQI has a broad remit across education and training in Ireland. In the area of quality assurance, QQI is responsible for reviewing the effectiveness of quality assurance in further and higher education and training providers in Ireland. As a VISKA project partner, QQI operates as a delegated body of the Department of Education and Skills in Ireland and aimed to disseminate useful and practical information on international approaches and good practice on the recognition of prior learning of adults. It was hoped that the VISKA project would inform the development of a national policy in this area and the building of a network of practitioners through which localisation of approaches and tools would be achieved, in parallel with certain other national validation initiatives.

In Ireland the National Advisory Group for VISKA gave an opportunity to interact with key stakeholders, assisting in the development of an informed basis for contributions on policy and practice. In addition, some feedback on the use of the European Skills Profiling Tool with adults in Ireland are included in the overall project findings.
