African Continental Qualifications Framework - 4th peer learning webinar

This is the 4th peer learning Webinar of the capacity development programme, organised in 2020 by the ACQF - development project.
The ACQF is a policy initiative of the African Union supported by the EU.
The peer learning programme is focused on core themes of qualifications frameworks and systems, and contributes to boost engagement of African Union member states and stakeholders and to develop knowledge and a common understanding of key concepts, objectives, and operational instruments of national and regional qualifications frameworks.

Experiences shared at the previous webinars showed similarities and differences in scope, conceptual-technical design, governance and implementation mechanisms.

In July 2020 we learned from the experiences of 4 national qualifications frameworks (Kenya, Slovenia, Mozambique and Ireland) and 2 overarching reference frameworks (European Qualifications Framework and ASEAN Qualifications Reference Framework), while during the 3rd meeting we found out about the qualifications frameworks of Mauritius, France and Portugal.
At the 4th Webinar we will learn from key representatives of the national qualifications frameworks of Lesotho and Bahrain.

The presentation on the Arab Qualifications Framework will illustrate how regional integration and mobility benefit from a regional (referencing) framework.
Many more interesting African NQF experiences will be in the spotlight at the next webinars until the end of October 2020.
