Quality assurance frameworks

The Australian Qualifications Framework was developed under instruction for the Ministerial Council on Education, Employment, Training and Youth Affairs and is a key national policy instrument to protect the quality of Australian education and training. The AQF comprises:

– agreed national guidelines for each of the current national qualifications issued in the schools, vocational education and training and higher education sectors;

– principles for articulation and credit transfer;

– registers of authorities empowered by government to a credited qualification and to issue qualification and a structure for monitoring implementation of the AQF and advising Ministers, including recommending any changes.
