F.A.Q. What is the National Framework of Qualifications (NFQ)? The NFQ (below) is a ten level system that incorporates awards made for all kinds of learning, large and small, whether it is gained in schools, the workplace, the community, training centres, colleges or universities. For each level of the NFQ, standards of knowledge, skill and competence have been set out, defining the outcomes to be achieved by a learner seeking to gain a qualification. ADVANC ED CERTIFIC ATE

What are the benefits of the NFQ for learners?

Awards in the Framework

FETAC - Further Education and Training Awards Council

There are four types of award in the National Framework of Qualifications

The international dimension of the introduction of the NFQ is important. The introduction of the NFQ has aided the recognition of qualifications not only for holders of NFQ awards traveling abroad but also for those traveling to this country with awards made outside the State.

To get the most out of the education and training, it is worth considering the following questions: • What qualifications does a given programme lead to? • Who is the awarding body? • What level is the qualification on the NFQ? • What type of qualification (major, minor etc.) is it? • What progression routes are available after completing the programme?

What about awards obtained outside of Ireland – can they be recognised here?

What questions should I ask before making a decision about my education and training?

Major Awards: are the principal class of awards made at a level Minor Awards: are for partial completion of the outcomes for a Major Award Supplemental Awards: are for learning that is additional to a Major Award Special Purpose Awards: are for relatively narrow or purpose-specific achievment

From a learner perspective, the NFQ can help individuals to plan their education, training, career progression and provide value for different types of learning. Its transparent nature allows learners to compare and contrast qualifications and make informed choices about the qualifications they choose, whilst taking into account the progression routes that may be open to them upon completion, thereby avoiding education and training cul-de-sacs.

Universities

Why has the qualifications system changed? The national objective of moving towards a ‘lifelong learning society’ in which learners can avail of learning opportunities at various stages throughout their lives, was a key factor in the changes that have taken place. This led to the need for a more flexible and integrated system of qualifications that could accommodate all shapes and sizes of education and training in Ireland. The introduction of the NFQ addressed this need.

EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) is a psychological version of acupuncture except that there are no needles. It works by a person “tuning in” or thinking about their problem/s or emotional issue/s, whilst stress relief points are gently stimulated by tapping on them with their fingertips. It is the gentle tapping that provides the meridians with a “balancing effect” that replaces emotional distress with a form of calm and peace, like acupuncture and acupressure. Counsellors, Therapists, Psychotherapists and Psychologists use EFT as part of their skillset.
