The Status Quo of ECVET implementation in Ireland

At Government level a decision has not yet been taken to implement ECVET. Stakeholders are involved on a national consultative basis within the Copenhagen Implementation Group, which includes representatives from education and training providers, both public and private, learners, government departments and other state agencies. ECVET is discussed by this group within a broader policy context, though they do not have an ECVET governance role.

Within Ireland the conditions for ECVET implementation are in place. Currently the national contact point for ECVET is Quality and Qualifications Ireland (QQI).
