QQI Courses

Creedons College received confirmation that we have been approved as a QQI provider in June 2018.

This achievement means so much to Creedons College and our learners.

It means that Creedons College is now the only educational institution that specialises in animal care that is Nationally Accredited here in Ireland.

It means that graduates of our programmes will be able to travel with their qualification, as QQI awards are recognised and approved by the European Association for Quality Assurance in Higher Education, so your qualifications will ‘make sense’ around the world.

It means that potential learners can be confident that Creedons College will provide them with a quality learning experience, having met the extremely high standards of QQI.

It means that if you are eligible for educational grants, such as the Back to Education grant, Back to Enterprise grant and so on, you can apply for funding on one of our QQI programmes.

And finally, it means that the hard work, commitment, and dedication to continual improvement of the team here at Creedons College has been recognised, and our seemingly impossible vision of having our little old College join the same league as the colleges of Further Education has been fulfilled.
