QQI qualifications are graded using the NFQ (National Framework of Qualifications). The leaving cert would be at level 4 of the NFQ PLC courses come in at levels 5 and 6. With universities offering qualifications at levels 7 and 8. Postgraduate qualifications come in top of the order at levels 9 and 10.
