Quality Assurance in Qualifications Frameworks

Date: 12-13 March, 2013

Venue: George's Hall, Dublin Castle



Qualifications Frameworks and Quality Assurance systems are now key features of education and training landscape in both higher and vocational education and training. The conference explored how policy and implementation can be co-ordinated within national systems and at European level to support educational reform and the creation of jobs, growth and mobility for citizens.

Four key themes were explored: integrating frameworks and quality assurance, using quality assurance to improve the labour market relevance of qualifications, facilitating the validation of formal and non-formal learning, and promoting confidence in Europe’s qualifications on a global scale.
