This apprenticeship at level eight on the NFQ was developed by the Insurance Institute of Ireland and Institute of Technology Sligo and in addition to attaining the level eight qualification under IT Sligo's delegated authority from Quality and Qualifications Ireland (QQI), the programme includes embedded awards from the Insurance Institute.
