Work programme of the Bologna Follow-Up Group 2005-2007
ENQA Workshop on Quality Assurance and Qualifications Frameworks
The ENQA Workshop on Quality Assurance and Qualifications Frameworks was hosted by the Higher Education and Training Awards Council (HETAC).
Quality assurance and qualifications systems were two of the Bologna Process action lines that saw significant development at the ministerial meeting in Bergen in 2005. The ministers adopted the Standards and Guidelines for the European Higher Education Area (EHEA) and the Framework for Qualifications of the EHEA. Stocktaking for the London ministerial meeting in May 2007 reported on the implementation of these two tools for the reform of European higher education.
- The workshop explored roles for quality assurance agencies in the development of national frameworks of qualifications;
- It examined methods used for the incorporation of national qualifications frameworks into programme accreditation policies and procedures;
- It shared practice and concepts on how responsibility for the implementation of national frameworks is distributed across internal and external quality assurance functions.
