Author(s)Sjur Bergan
Qualifications frameworks represent one of the main developments within the Bologna Process. They describe the qualifications that make up an education system and emphasize learning outcomes - what learners know, understand and are able to do on the basis of a given qualification. Qualifications frameworks also describe how the various qualifications within a system articulate and how learners can move between them. The session will provide an overview of the development of qualifications frameworks as well as the relationship between national frameworks and the overarching framework of the European Higher Education Area and the EQF of the European Union.
