The conference takes place on June 25th and 26th, 2012 in Munich (Germany).
Although learning outcomes should be basically describable for all qualifications by using the EQF descriptors knowledge, skills and competence in the same way regardless of their origin in terms of country or organisation responsible for maintaining and monitoring structures in which they are embedded, a mere description in EQF terms cannot dispel any doubts about the real value of this qualification: the EQF as such does not deliver enough criteria for assessment and comparison of qualifications. It is therefore important how qualifications frameworks are referenced to the EQF. In a situation where qualifications frameworks are not available in every European country, every educational area, and occupational sector at the same level of development, it does not surprise that a common understanding of appropriate referencing these frameworks to the EQF does not exist.
The results of the projects Common Grounds for Referencing NQFs and SQFs to the EQF (NQF-SQF), with 3s as project partner, and Matching Frames shall help to foster this understanding and will be presented at the conference.
Registration for both conference days is free of charge. The first conference day will be held in German and the second day in English.
