20.1 QQI’s Policies and Standards Committee has introduced “Measures to Mitigate the Impact of the Covid-19 Pandemic on Programmes leading to QQI Awards” which apply to a number of programmes delivered by IICP. Such measures include, amongst other things, the delivery of programmes online where possible.
20.2 Accordingly, all IICP programmes will be delivered primarily online while the Covid-19 pandemic is ongoing. IICP will endeavour to facilitate some face to face teaching provided that this can be done in line with public health guidelines and having regard to the safety of our learners, staff and faculty.
20.3 Learners acknowledge that IICP will have full discretion in determining how its programmes will be delivered during this period, including teaching methods, assessment methods and the academic timetable, having regard at all times to public health guidelines and the safety of our staff, lecturers and learners.
20.4 Learners acknowledge that graduation ceremonies may need to be held virtually during this period.
20.5 Learners agree to follow all government guidelines and advice as well as any policies and procedures issued by IICP in relation to reducing the spread of Covid-19 including but not limited to adhering to social distancing requirements and requirements to wear face coverings.
20.6 IICP may record online lectures, tutorials and assessments during this period and learners agree that their personal data may be processed for the purposes of such recordings.
20.7 The health and safety of our learners, staff and faculty is a priority for IICP. Learners should check the IICP website regularly for updates in this regard.
