  1. Objectives of the meeting

The African Union is richer with the successful ACQF process started at the Inaugural workshop on 3 September 2019 in Addis, at AU Headquarters. Now it is time to look back and step forward. Let us gather for the final meeting of the ACQF community to review the achievements and listen to your views on the way forward. View and download the Final Report of ACQF Activities and Outputs for more details.

The ACQF development project has reached its final milestone and together with the ACQF community accomplished relevant achievements, such as the ACQF Policy Document supported by the 10 Guidelines and 10 Training modules, the ACQF Mapping Study collection and the dynamic and participative capacity development program of 20 Peer Learning Webinars and two Training Weeks. The ACQF project contributes to development of National and Regional Qualifications Frameworks, in accordance with the objectives of the Continental Education Strategy for Africa (2025). ACQF website provides information on all technical outputs, tools, news, training webinars and workshops, and launched a renewed Home Page easier to navigate. Most importantly, the ACQF community continues to grow in number of countries, and involved stakeholder organisations (national, regional, and continental), and the ACQF Advisory Group has built experience as the key stakeholder platform supporting participation and ownership.

Participants of this final webinar include the members of the ACQF Advisory Group, and the wider community of representatives from countries and thematic organisations, experts, and ACQF trainees. The agenda of the webinar includes a panel of ACQF stakeholders sharing their experience and suggestions, and exchanges on the ACQF process and outputs underpinning the transition to the implementation phase
