Accreditation Fees & Costs

By | Resource

Accreditation Costs

There are several facets to the costs of accreditation:
  1. Payments made to the relevant accreditation bodies and comprise a mix of membership fees, accreditation fees and other expenses etc.  These are relatively fixed and easy to estimate (see link below).
  2. Staffing and advisory costs to support accreditation.  These are harder to estimate, and depend on several factors.  Will there be an accreditation team with sufficient time and experience to manage the full accreditation process? Are there additional faculty allowances given to accreditation?  Will the School require some external input, to support the internal resources?
  3. Investment Costs:  These vary hugely from school to school and naturally depend on each School’s strategic priorities.  Of course, strategic investment costs are not always linked to accreditation: Some strategic decisions will be made regardless of accreditation plans.  Others may only be made as a consequence of accreditation.

QED has listed the costs and fees associated with each of the accreditation bodies (#1 above).  These can be viewed here.

QED wins National Leadership Award

LIFTED 2019 Kitemark

QED was recognised with an award for its commitment to leadership at an annual leadership event held at the Aviva Stadium, Dublin on Wednesday 22nd May 2019. The award, from LIFT Ireland, a not-for-profit initiative aimed at increasing the level of positive leadership in Ireland, was accepted on behalf of QED by Joanne Powell. Over the last 12 months, QED has introduced LIFT Ireland’s positive leadership training and made a commitment to fostering leadership values across its employees and the wider community.

LIFT Ireland, which stands for ‘Leading Ireland’s Future Together’, was founded in 2017 by siblings Joanne and David Hession along with Sonya Lennon, founder of Dress For Success Dublin. The collective movement aims at teaching people of Ireland, from ages 14 and up, positive leadership skills. LIFT does this through its eight-part, group learning programme. Since its launch in May 2018, almost 1,000 people have become involved, from across Ireland. LIFT adopters have included community groups, businesses, schools, and sports clubs including, most notably, Munster Rugby.

On Wednesday afternoon, LIFT Ireland recognised over twenty organisations from all sectors for their commitment to leadership and LIFT throughout the past year.

Joanne Hession, Co-Founder of LIFT Ireland spoke of the reasoning behind the event.

“LIFT Ireland was created to increase the level of positive leadership capabilities in Ireland. Our goal is that by 2028 over 10% of the country’s population will be “Living LIFT”. That is to say that around half a million Irish people will have experienced our learning groups and adopted the teachings in their everyday lives. Last May, to celebrate the launch of LIFT Ireland, we held ‘LIFT OFF’. To keep the momentum going, we wanted to hold annual LIFTING events from LIFTING 2019 through to LIFTING 2028 and beyond. That is the reason we are here today. It’s been very inspiring to hear from so many great leaders and those positively affected by LIFT. ”
