What is the EQF?
- The European Qualifications Framework for Lifelong learning is a common European reference framework which enables European countries to link their national qualifications systems to one another.
- It is a translation device making qualifications more readable and understandable across different countries and systems in Europe.
- The key aim of the EQF is to contribute to creating a truly European work force that is mobile and flexible.
- The EQF will not replace existing frameworks or define national qualifications systems or qualifications.
What are the benefits of the EQF?
The EQF can add value by broadening the recognition of learning which takes place across European countries. It can help individuals, employers and education and training providers compare individual qualifications from different countries and education and training systems. This common understanding helps to increase the status of both the learning itself and the qualifications completed.
