An Initial Quality Dialogue Meeting (IQDM) was held between TETB and QQI on 15th November 2017 to explore the development of TETB’s QA infrastructure. This meeting also provided an opportunity for TETB to discuss with QQI directly, matters relating to its own specific operating context.
Subsequently, TETB submitted its ESE Report and QIP to QQI as part of a re-engagement process in January 2018. TETB then attended a Single Purpose Dialogue Meeting on 26th February 2018 to review the documentation submitted and agree next steps with QQI. Further dialogue is planned for the end of 2018 to review and discuss TETB’s progress.
