European Framework for Quality and Effective Apprenticeships

The European Framework for Quality and Effective Apprenticeships is a Council Recommendation for 14 Criteria for learning and working conditions which are going to improve the quality of the apprenticeships. These principles were the guiding principles for the implementation of DIVET and are available here.

European Qualifications Framework

The European Qualifications Framework (EQF) is a common European reference framework whose purpose is to make qualifications more readable and understandable across different countries and systems. Covering qualifications at all levels and in all sub-systems of education and training, the EQF provides a comprehensive overview over qualifications in the 38 European countries currently involved in its implementation. DIVET has developed the qualification in level 4. More information here.
