The Technological Higher Education Association is the voice of the technological higher education sector, advocating on behalf of and supporting our members in achieving their aims and objectives. The Technological Higher Education Association was formed by all of the institutes of technology formerly represented by Institutes of Technology Ireland joining with Dublin Institute of Technology to form a cohesive and single advocacy body that supports the sector as it moves toward a planned reform of the higher education system and including critically the creation of a series of Technological Universities. Launched formally in April 2017, this dynamic family of institutions delivers a unique offering which allows students to progress from Level 6 to Level 10 of the National Framework of Qualifications.Read More
