Who are we? Quality Matters are a not-for-profit working with organisations across Ireland to improve social service provision. We provide certified training on innovative practices and core skills for the not-for-profit sector.

Why choose to train with us? Our Training Delivery and Evaluation course is unique as it is underpinned by research in behavioural psychology and neuroscience. This course will provide learners with an understanding of how people learn and how, as trainers, we can provide psychologically informed learner experiences that are memorable and effective.
