Global inventory of regional and national qualifications frameworks 2019 – Volume I: Thematic chapters

This publication gathers information on progress in establishing national qualifications frameworks, as well as the challenges and success factors in implementation. It shows how countries around the globe are reforming their education systems by improving the quality and relevance of their qualifications. Volume I focuses on three core areas that are dominating the direction of reforming policies – digitisation, recognition of prior learning, and outcomes-based approaches to managing education and training – and concludes with an exploration of the benefits which can be gained from forging closer links between qualifications frameworks as policy tools, and the practitioners whose work makes them meaningful and valuable to individuals and society as a whole.
