  • Referencing Qualifications Frameworks in the European Diploma Supplement

    John O’Connor

    The process of EQF implementation requires that, by 2012, all new qualification certificates, diplomas and ‘Europass’ documents issued by the competent authorities contain a clear reference, by way of national qualifications systems, to the appropriate EQF level. The European Diploma Supplement (EDS) is one such Europass document which must reflect the outcomes of the EQF referencing process by each member state. This article sets out the background to the development of Qualifications Frameworks in Ireland and shows how these developments are being supported by other transparency and recognition instruments, in particular the EDS.
