European Qualifications Framework for Lifelong Learning (EQF)

Information on Recognition of skills and qualifications on the European Commission website

In the context of the European Qualifications Framework for lifelong learning (EQF-LLL), the European Commission and CEDEFOP have issued a publication on the added value of national qualifications frameworks, written by Jens Bjørnavold and Mike Coles.  The publication addresses the role of national frameworks in relation to the EQF but the considerations are equally valid for the relationship between national frameworks and the overarching framework of qualifications of the European Higher Education Area.

The concept of qualifications

Qualifications: introduction to a concept by Sjur Bergan (Council of Europe higher education series No. 6) (2007)
Qualifications are a key element of higher education policies in general and of the Bologna Process in particular. Much work has been accomplished in this area over the past few years, and a proper understanding of qualifications is essential to making the European Higher Education Area a reality.
This book provides a systematic overview of the concept of qualifications, discusses its main elements, such as level, workload, quality, profile and learning outcomes and examines generic and subject-specific competences. The author also considers the development of qualifications frameworks and explores the impact of our understanding of the concept of qualifications on recognition.
