The Irish Register of Qualifications (IRQ) is an official register of qualifications recognised on the National Framework of Qualifications (NFQ). The register, still in development, lists qualifications at all 10 levels on the NFQ. Currently, approximately 12,000 courses, 350 providers and 8,500 qualifications are listed.
Guidance professionals, funding bodies, national and international learners and recognition services can use it to search, check and verify programmes and qualifications.
The register also has a role in making Irish qualifications more visible in Europe. The IRQ is linked to the Qualifications Dataset Register on the Europass platform and we encourage individuals, learners and professionals to take a look. Complementary to the IRQ, the Qualifax website continues to support learners, their parents and the guidance community with detailed and additional course information.
