Awarding Bodies

Your course leads to a certified qualification that is of recognised quality and international standing, and will represent your achievement and your efforts at the institute. QQI (Quality and Qualifications Ireland) is our primary awarding body at Carlow Institute, and our Level 5 and Level 6 courses lead to their internationally recognised qualifications. QQI awards will support your choice of progression to work and to further study.

We also offer qualifications from other leading awarding bodies. These awards can become your passport to a successful career, and the awarding bodies include:

  • CIDESCO (Comité International d’Esthétique et de Cosmétologie)
  • City and Guilds
  • ITEC (International Therapy Examination Council)
  • SEC – State Examinations Commission (Department of Education and Skills)
  • VTCT – Vocational Training Charitable Trust

Details of the underpinning awards are shown on each course information page, and further information is available from course co-ordinators.
