Upon successful completion of a Major award, learners can progress to an award on the next level on the NFQ.  Alternatively, the Higher Education Links Scheme (HELS) gives learners the opportunity to use their QQI Level 5/6 Major Award to apply through the CAO for a place in the first year of a higher education programme. In some instances, progression is on the basis of specific Level 5 or 6 Major Awards, Learners should check with the higher education institution prior to commencement. Components (Minor Awards), or achievement of less than 120 credits, will not suffice for progression under the HELS.
