Seminar of the ICQN-TVSD on National Qualifications Frameworks

08 July 2013 to 09 July 2013
Côte d’Ivoire

At the second meeting of the Inter-Country Quality Node on Technical and Vocational Skills Development (ICQN/TVSD), which was held in Abidjan from 19 to 21 September 2011, the ministers and representatives of the 20 countries present decided to create three thematic groups: one on the transition to work, one on national qualification frameworks and one on the role of trade/business associations in the field of TVSD. This concept paper focuses on the setting up of the thematic group on national qualification frameworks (NQFs) and preparation of a seminar on this topic to be held in late spring 2013. The seminar follows the one on youth integration that took place on 3 and 4 December 2013 in Abidjan. It aims to pursue the debate on the design and creation of NQFs in Africa, drawing on the experiences of countries that have made significant progress in this area, in particular regarding the recognition and accreditation of skills acquired outside formal training and qualification systems.
