The European Qualifications Framework for lifelong learning (EQF) aims to improve the
transparency, comparability and portability of people’s qualifications.
The EQF was set up in 2008 as a common reference framework of qualifications, expressed as learning outcomes at increasing levels of proficiency.
The framework serves as a translation device between different qualifications systems and their levels. It is intended to benefit learners, workers, job-seekers, employers, trade unions, education and training providers, qualification recognition bodies and government authorities (including international organisations).Catalog N. : KE-01-18-211-EN-N
