Forum on Qualifications Frameworks
11 - 12 October 2007. Council of Europe, Strasbourg
Qualifications frameworks describe each qualification within a given education system as well as the way in which the various qualifications of that system interact. Qualifications frameworks should emphasize learning outcomes – what learners know, understand and are able to do with a qualification – and how learners can move between qualifications within the same system.
As a first step in fulfilling its new responsibilities, the Council of Europe held a conference on qualifications frameworks at Council Headquarters in Strasbourg on 11 – 12 October 2007.
At the Ministerial conference of the Bologna Process held in London on 17 – 18 May 2007 the Council of Europe was given responsibility for coordinating the sharing of experience in the development of national qualifications frameworks compatible with the overarching framework of qualifications of the European Higher Education Area.
