Protection for Enrolled Learners (PEL)

The Qualifications and Quality Assurance (Education and Training) Act 2012 (the 2012 Act) makes specific mention of Protection of Enrolled Learners (PEL) in Part 6 (Sections 64-67), and outlines the requirements for compliance by providers and by QQI.

As a provider of programmes more than 3 months in duration, we are subject to Part 6 of the Qualifications and Quality Assurance (Education and Training) Act 2012. This means that, if for any reason, we are unable to continue to provide the programme leading the 5M4339 Healthcare Support award you are enrolled on, we have arrangements in place whereby you will be able to transfer to a similar programme provided by an alternative provider.  If we need to do this, we need to share the learner information we hold on you with QQI and/or with the alternative provider.  This does not infringe Data Protection legislation.

 

If you would like to discuss these arrangements further, or if you have any questions please contact our office by email info@hcts.ie
