CMIT Protection for Enrolled Learners

CMIT has appropriate arrangements in place for the protection of learners on QQI programmes which have a duration of three months or longer, should CMIT unexpectedly cease to provide such a QQI programme.

This applies to the following programmes:

  • Administration 6M5013 – Major Award.
  • Business 6M4985 – Major Award.
  • Early Childhood Care and Education 6M2007 – Major Award.
  • Training and Development  6S3372 – Special Purpose Award.

CMIT 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. Learner Protection insurance is provided by Arachas and underwritten by Aviva Insurance Ireland DAC. 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 programme in another provider. In such circumstances, the learner may opt to receive the cost of an alternative similar academic programme. Transfer to another programme is always only a second option. The learner protection insurance policy is governed by s. 65(4)(b) of the 2012 Act.’
