Protection of Enrolled Learners (PEL)

IBAT College Dublin has Protection of Enrolled Learners (PEL) arrangements in place to ensure that in the event of a cessation of programmes by the college, such arrangements will ensure a learner has a smooth continuance of the programme they are studying.

This arrangement complies with Section 65(4)(a) of the Qualifications and Quality Assurance (Education and Training) Act 2012 in respect of learners on a programme leading to a QQI Award.

Part 6 of The Qualifications and Quality Assurance (Education and Training) Act 2012 specifies that PEL refers only to programmes of three months duration or more where fees have been paid by, or on behalf of, the learner.

IBAT College Dublin has approval to offer students learner protection insurance. Learner Protection insurance is only in place when each student receives their Insurance Policy. Each learner should ensure that they receive a Learner Protection Insurance Policy in their name. The learner protection policy provides for a refund of fees as specified in the 2012 Act. In some circumstances, it may be possible for a learner to transfer to a similar program in another provider. In such circumstances, the learner may opt to receive the cost of an alternative similar academic program. Transfer to another program is always only a second option. The learner protection insurance policy is governed by s. 65(4)(b) of the 2012 Act.

Learner Protection is provided by IBAT College Dublin, through O'Driscoll O'Neil DAC t/a StudyandProtect, who is regulated by the Central Bank of Ireland.
