State of Play on National Qualifications Frameworks Presented in Cedefop Briefing Note


cedefopCedefop has published a new briefing note on the state of qualifications frameworks in Europe in 2017. The publication, made available in February 2018, considers the status of development of National Qualifications Frameworks (NQFs), the impact that NQFs are having, and a number of other areas. At present, 39 European countries are in the process of developing or implementing NQFs; 35 of those have already formally adopted their NQFs.

The briefing note also looks at areas such as the integration of ‘private-sector and international’ qualifications, noting the development of procedures to include such qualifications in the Netherlands, France, Ireland and the UK.
