The Quality Improvement Agency for Lifelong Learning is an advisory NDPB and was established on 1 April 2006. QIA will soon be merged with the Centre for Excellence in Leadership to form a new sector owned improvement body for the further education and skills sector.

In the financial year 2006 to 2007 the QIA’s budget was £95.315 million, and its gross expenditure was £93.135 million.

In the financial year 2007 to 2008 the QIA’s budget was £114.773 million. The figure for its gross expenditure in the financial year 2007-08 is not yet available as the Department will not receive the final accounts for that year from the QIA until mid July.
