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.

  1. Biological laboratory technician (m/f)

    Type of qualification This qualification is a dual vocational education and training (3-year and 3½-year training course). The vocational education and training system is highly significant in Germany. Central importance in this regard is attached to training within the dual system, which facilitates access to many areas of occupational activity for which in other countries training at an institute of higher education is required. The system is described as “dual” because training is conducted at two independent training venues, the company and the vocational school. Training combines the acquisition of theoretical knowledge and practically related competences with company practice. Successful completion of training confers the right directly to exercise the occupation in question as a qualified skilled worker in a state recognised training occupation. It also leads to the subsequent opportunity to access a wide range of upgrading training. Those completing training hold the professional skills, knowledge and competences (employability skills) necessary for the exercising of a qualified occupational activity. They are in possession of competences for the autonomous planning and processing of professional tasks assigned within a comprehensive area of learning or field of occupational activity which is subject to change. Description of the qualification (learning outcomes) Work together with scientists in the planning and execution of experiments according due consideration to the rules of health and safety at wo ...

  2. State-certified biological technician

    Type of qualification This qualification is a vocational education and training at a vocational school governed by federal state law. Attendance at full-time vocational school for a period of two years imparts the necessary qualifications for the exercising of a state recognised training occupation under federal state law. This is a full-time school-based training course with a minimum duration of two years. Teaching encompasses a cross-occupational, an occupationally related and possibly also a practical area of learning. Courses are aligned towards occupational work processes and company business processes. A practical placement is integrated into training. Successful completion of training confers the right directly to exercise the occupation in question as a qualified skilled worker in a training occupation governed by federal state law. Those completing the qualification acquire the necessary employability skills for the exercising of a qualified occupational activity. These bring together professional competence, autonomy and social competence to form overall occupational competence. Methodological competence, communicative competence and learning competence are also intrinsic components of employability skills. They are in possession of competences for the autonomous planning and processing of professional tasks assigned within a comprehensive area of learning or field of occupational activity which is subject to change. Description of the qualification (learning outcomes) Use technical biological, bio-c ...

  3. State-certified technical engineer

    Type of qualification This qualification is a advanced vocational training governed by federal state law at a trade and technical school. Trade and technical schools are continuing training institutions which impart recognised vocational qualifications governed by federal state law in various organisational forms (full-time or part-time basis).  They qualify workers to take on higher-level skilled work and middle-level and senior level leadership and management tasks in functional areas which are also knowledge and practice oriented.  Curricula build on the knowledge and competences imparted during initial vocational education and training and on the experiences gained from several years of professional activity and are closely aligned to company practice and current related technical disciplines. Duration of continuing training is 2 or 3 years (correspondingly longer if completed on a part-time basis). Those completing the qualification are in possession of competences for the planning, processing and evaluation of comprehensive professional tasks and problems and of competences for autonomous management of processes in sub-areas of a technical specialism or in a field of occupational activity. They are in a position to reflect upon their own actions, take on management tasks and enter professional self-employment. Description of the qualification (learning outcomes) Solve technical and scientific problems on the basis of broad and integrated knowledgeAutonomous market and customer oriented implementation of n ...
