Education and Training Boards Ireland (ETBI) on behalf of the 16 Education and Training Boards (ETB’s)are establishing a new national panel of External Authenticators (EA) for Further Education and Training programmes.
The External Authenticator provides independent confirmation of fair and consistent assessment of learners in accordance with QQI requirements and reports on consistency of assessment results with national standards.
In collaboration with the Further Education Support Service a number of information briefing sessions will be held at venues throughout Ireland. During these Briefing Sessions the requirements for the role and the application process will be discussed.
Previous External Authentication experience is desirable but not essential. Interested individuals should have experience of delivering or assessing programmes leading to QQI awards, or associated industry expertise (5 years).
This EA Panel will serve those services in Education and Training Boards providing programmes leading to QQI awards.

*Note until further notice existing Panels/EAs will still operate at local levels.
