HERE Seminar Qualifications Frameworks: What are they, how do they work, what is their impact?
19-20 September, 2016, Warsaw, Poland
Qualifications frameworks (QF) are developed at both national and regional level across the globe, including in Europe and many of its partner countries. QF can be driven by different motivations: They can help to render an education system more transparent, by classifying qualifications and showing how one can progess from and between different levels and sectors of education, provide an indication of the learning outcomes that learners would achieve at each level of education, assist with recognition of qualifications within and between countries and regions, and contribute to quality assurance systems.
As most QFs are relatively recent developments, they still have to prove their benefits, and to gain the ownership and understanding of the wider public.
The HERE Needs Assessment and the request for Technical Assistance Missions confirm that QF are a key area of interest for national reform development. This seminar will provide insight on both national and regional QFs, and assess their potential and real impacts.
