Programmes provided by the College of Computing Technology (CCT) are validated or accredited by the following globally recognised awarding bodies:
- Quality & Qualifications Ireland (QQI)
- Edexcel – Pearson, UK
- Microsoft Academy
*QQI is the Irish state agency responsible for the external quality assurance of all further and higher education and training (including English language provision), in Ireland, and validates programmes and makes awards for certain providers in these sectors. QQI does not accredit institutions – it validates programmes of study. CCT is a provider of QQI validated programmes that, on successful completion, will lead to QQI awards.
CCT also comes under the Education in Ireland brand. Enterprise Ireland manages the Education in Ireland national brand under the authority of the Minister for Education and Skills. Enterprise Ireland is responsible for the promotion of Irish Higher Education Institutions overseas.
CCT is delighted to be a member of the Higher Education Colleges Association (HECA). The Higher Education Colleges Association (HECA) is an association of respected, independent, private providers of quality higher level education in Ireland. The association was formed in 1991 to represent the interests of its member colleges and their students. HECA members currently provide higher education for approximately 21,000 students. HECA runs a group scheme, which provides academic bonding arrangements for the protection of enrolled learners, in the unlikely event of cessation of a programme in any institution. CCT is proud to be a part of this scheme.
