Education : Qualifications framework more transparent

The New European Qualifications Framework will be discussed during the meeting that will gather education specialists and policy-makers in Brussels on 29/30 January. The aim of this tool is to facilitate the educational transfert and the recognition of the qualifications for people moving between different education and training systems of different countries.

Over 150 education specialists and policy-makers from 58 countries across the world are coming together in Brussels on 29-30 January to discuss the external dimension of the new European Qualifications Framework (EQF). The EQF is a reference tool that aims to make it easier for people to move between different education and training systems or countries and have their qualifications recognised.

EU countries are currently putting in place this voluntary scheme with regard to their own systems. At the same time, many countries in the EU’s vicinity and across the world are working on similar schemes and are showing a keen interest in sharing experiences with Europe, or in ways of linking up to the EQF.

The global conference on the EQF is organised by the European Training Foundation (ETF) in cooperation with the Chair of the European Parliament’s Employment and Social Affairs Committee, Mr Jan Andersson, the Czech Presidency, the Directorate-General for Education and Culture of the European Commission and Cedefop, the European Centre for the Development of Vocational Training.
