How does ACQF support your Qualifications Frameworks and Systems?

The ACQF will be the largest of the regional qualifications frameworks (RQFs), as it cooperates with 55 countries and 8 regional economic communities (RECs). ACQF will be the only RQF interacting with two different levels – national and regional qualifications frameworks.

The ACQF will support:

  • Comparability, quality and transparency of qualifications and support people´s lifelong learning;
  • To facilitate recognition of diplomas and certificates, and support mobility (learners, workers, services);
  • Work in cooperation and complementarity with NQFs and RQFs and support the creation of an African education and qualifications space; and
  • Promote cooperation, alignment/referencing between qualifications frameworks (national and regional) in Africa and worldwide.

ACQF and Qualifications frameworks need robust conceptual and technical foundations, such as the 10 ACQF Guidelines and Training Modules (ACQF Handbook) to help countries and regions in Africa developing or consolidating their qualifications frameworks and systems. The 10 Guidelines are in development, and will be released in July 2022. Visit the webpage!
