The European Qualifications Framework (EQF) is a translation tool that helps communication and comparison between qualifications systems in Europe. Its eight common European reference levels are described in terms of learning outcomes: knowledge, skills and competences. This allows any national qualifications systems, national qualifications frameworks (NQFs) and qualifications in Europe to relate to the EQF levels. Learners, graduates, providers and employers can use these levels to understand and compare qualifications awarded in different countries and by different education and training systems.

  8. How does the EQF work?

    Why the EQF? The free movement of people in Europe is one of the most important goals of the EU. However, the understanding and the recognition of diplomas and certificates issued in the different national education and training systems of the 28 Member States of the EU is a challenge. For this reason, the EU developed a translation device to make national qualifications more readable in order to promote workers' and learners' mobility, facilitating their lifelong learning and occupational mobility across Europe. This is the European Qualifications Framework for lifelong learning (EQF). What is the EQF? The EQF helps to compare national qualifications systems and enable communication among them. The core of the EQF are eight common European reference levels, which are described in learning outcomes: knowledge, skills and responsibility and autonomy. This makes it more understandable what a learner with a qualification related to the EQF knows, understands and is able to do. This approach enables to compare all types and levels of qualifications including qualifications from higher education, vocational education and training and general education, but also qualifications awarded by the private sector and international organisations. Level 1 presents the lowest level of proficiency, level 8 the highest. In principle all possible ways of learning can lead to the learning outcomes of a particular level, including the learning taking place in non-formal and informal contexts.  The EQF initiative is close ...
