All of the courses on offer in Muine Bheag Vocational School are validated by nationally and internationally recognised bodies. Since 2004, all FETAC courses and awards have come within the National Framework of Qualifications developed by the National Qualifications Authority of Ireland (NQAI).
The Framework consists of ten levels with each level based on specified standards of knowledge, skill and competence. These standards define the outcomes achieved by learners seeking to gain awards at each level. Progression routes are clearly outlined.
