QQI makes four types of awards: major, minor, special purpose and supplemental.

  • A major award is the principal class of award made at each level. It represents a significant volume of learning outcomes. A major award will prepare learners for employment, participation in society and community and access to higher levels of education and training.
  • A Certificate will be awarded to all learners who successfully complete the major award requirements at levels 1-5 and an Advanced Certificate will be awarded at level 6.
  • All major awards comprise a combination of minor and/or special purpose awards. The learner must successfully achieve all the stated requirements in order to achieve the major award.
  • Learners may accumulate the appropriate minor and special purpose awards over time to achieve the major award.
  • A minor award is an award that is derived from and must link to, at least one major, special purpose or supplemental award. Minor awards are smaller than their parent award(s). Achievement of a minor award provides for recognition of learning that has relevance and value in its own right. A minor award is referred to as a Component.
  • A Component Certificate will be awarded to all learners who successfully complete one or more components (i.e. minor awards) but not the full or particular requirement for the Certificate.
  • A special purpose award is made for specific and relatively narrow purposes. All special purpose awards comprise one or more components. The learner must successfully achieve all the stated requirements in order to achieve the special purpose award.
  • A Specific Purpose Certificate will be awarded to all learners who successfully complete the award requirements.
  • A supplemental award is an award which recognises learning which involves updating/up-skilling and/or continuing education and training with specific regard to occupations. All supplemental awards comprise one or more components. The learner must successfully achieve all the stated requirements in order to achieve the supplemental award.
  • A Supplemental Certificate will be awarded to learners who successfully complete the award requirements.
