GRETB Strategy Statement

In compliance with the Qualifications and Quality Assurance (Education and Training) Act 2012 GRETB is in the process of re-engaging with Quality and Qualifications Ireland (QQI), the independent State agency responsible for promoting quality and accountability in education and training services in Ireland.

Since its establishment in 2013 GRETB has operated the four separate quality assurance policies and procedures originally agreed with FETAC. Re-engagement with QQI requires GRETB to develop a set of common quality assurance policies and procedures appropriate to all of its education and training services.

As new policies and procedures are developed and formally approved they will be published to this page and will supersede older versions.
