This programme is accredited by QQI (Quality and Qualifications, Ireland), Ireland’s national educational accreditation agency. The programme requires learners who have examined their business and planned its future to submit a business development plan for review and assessment. Typically, the formal assessment involves the submission of a 3,000-word written document (or equivalent) and a brief (15-30 minute) presentation of the business development plan to a panel. The college recognises that business development plans are confidential and not for further consideration or discussion by the college beyond the assessment process itself. 

The college’s business schools in Cork, Limerick and Dublin are inviting candidates from the Ireland Active webinar series to submit their business development plan to the college for consideration of the award of QQI Level 7 Certificate in SME Management.
