QQI Inaugural Review

LWETB’s external Quality Assurance obligations include a statutory review of Quality Assurance by QQI, as outlined in the Qualification and Quality Assurance (Education and Training) Act 2012.  The QQI Main Review Visit is scheduled for 25th to 29th April 2022.  In advance of this, LWETB has conducted a self-evaluation of its Quality Assurance systems and outlined findings in a Self-Evaluation Report and a Provider Profile. In addition LWETB has provided a Learner Summary of the Self-Evaluation Report.

These documents were submitted on 22nd December, 2021 to QQI.  The function of the Inaugural Review is to inform the future development of Quality Assurance and enhancement activities within the organisation.

The self-evaluation process was guided by, and overseen by, a LWETB Self-Evaluation Steering Group. Terms of Reference for this group can be viewed here.

Self-evaluation is a reflective and critical evaluation completed by the members of the ETB community, including learners, staff at all levels of the organisation, and external stakeholders. It is the way in which each ETB outlines how effectively it assures and enhances the quality of its teaching, learning and service activities to support the achievement of its strategic goals. When it is completed effectively, and in an open and inclusive manner, it is one of the most important and valuable components of the review process.
