Coordination Point for the NQF in Austria

The coordination point for the NQF in Austria (NCP) is the central administration, coordination and information office for the National Qualifications Framework (NQF) in Austria.

The aim of the National Qualifications Framework is to create a translation tool between the different qualifications systems and their levels for all areas of education in Austria. The recording and classification of the qualifications into eight levels is oriented upon learning results and is based on the Recommendation of the Parliament and of the Council of April 23rd, 2008 for the establishment of a common European reference framework, the European Qualifications Framework for Lifelong Learning (EQF).

The NCP team assures the relationship between the national qualifications system and the European Qualifications Framework, improves the quality and transparency between the two systems and thus guarantees the successful implementation of the national qualifications framework in Austria.
