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. Information technology specialist – specialising in systems integration

    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) Design and realise complex information technology and telecommunications systems by integrating hardware and software components, Install and ...

  2. IT Administrator (IT-Administrator und IT-Administratorin)

    Type of qualification This qualification is a nationwide standardised advanced vocational training. Vocational education and training in Germany has a multi-level system of advanced vocational training qualifications which are regulated in a nationally standardised manner.

This then serves as the basis of the qualifications. Those completing the qualifications are equipped for the autonomous and responsible assumption of demanding tasks.    This type of qualification includes the specialist profiles regulated by the Ordinance on Vocational Education and Training in the Information and Telecommunications Technology sector (IT Advanced Training Ordinance). Continuing training leading to the qualification of IT specialist forms the first level of the IT continuing training system pursuant to the IT Advanced Training Ordinance.
