Talk:National Qualifications Framework
|WikiProject Education||(Rated Start-class, High-importance)|
There needs to be a table showing how qualification have moved up and down over time. eg in the 1970's an ONC was equal to A levels and was acceptable for university entrance. The HNC with 3rd year supplimentary certificate was equal to an ordinary degree. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.104.22.168 (talk) 23:11, 15 January 2011 (UTC)
The HNC was n ever equal to a degree - a lot of nonsense - In the 1970's it was good enough to gain entrance into the first year of an engineering degree and even then many who possessed it did not pass the first year.
A General Nodal for NQFs
Shall we make it a General Node for National Qualification Frameworks by enslisting and describing all available NQFs. If agreed let us format this page for general information on NQF, links to NQFs of various nations etc. NQF for each nation may be started as a subpage of this node. Let us also start a In the News section the current major events related to NQFs can be highlighted. This will also help international agencies/institutions in their efforts for Transnational Qualification Framework
This article should be improved. Suggest we make it more general, e. e., about NQFs in general. The way NQF is defined here it seems it only applies or refers to that of England, Namibia and Scotland. Other countries such as New Zealand and South Africa also have their own NQFs. The NQF should be referenced to ILO Recommendation 195 on human resources development: education, training and lifelong learning. And then there shoulod be mention of NQF extensions like the transnational qualifications frameworks such as the EQF and that of the Caribbean TQF (I think there is also a previous article on TQFs, we just have to improve it. There are plenty of material on the NQF in the Web sites of ILO, UNESCO and the Community of Practice run by ILO Bangkok.
