Recognising Qualifications Gained Abroad

You've advertised, the applications are in. You have a range of applicants' qualifications, some you know and some you don't. You want to be fair, and are interested in bringing different experiences to your team. What can you do?

The National Framework of Qualifications (NFQ) provides a way of comparing qualifications gained abroad with the national qualifications system of Ireland. This qualifications recognition system directly benefits employers and recruiters because it helps you recognise appropriately qualified applicants. 

The NFQ is at an advanced stage of implementation and employers and recruiters can now identify qualifications that are recognised through the NFQ. This means that you can trust the quality assurance systems behind the issuing of the award.
