- The project is going to be implemented in the context of the Bologna Process, creation of one European Qualifications Framework and the subject area reference points developed by Tuning. Furthermore the project seeks to create European wide transparency with regard to higher education and training. This will allow for improved recognition of formal, informal and non formal learning against clear internationally established reference points.
- At present the Higher Education sector is working with the two existing European Qualification Frameworks. A Qualifications Framework is a common reference framework which links countries’ qualifications systems, acting as a translation device to make qualifications more readable and understandable across different countries and systems in Europe. A sector is understood here as a combination of related fields of study which is based on more or less comparable learning profiles.
