Recognition of Learning Outcomes

Last modified on 21-12-2011
Learning outcomes provide a form of reference of what the learner knows, understands and is able to do. Establishing learning outcomes, both within the European Qualifications Framework (EQF) and National Qualifications Framework (NQF), is important not only in establishing clear aims of educational programmes, but also in helping to provide a common reference framework at a European level, so that qualifications in different countries can be compared and understood.

The Tempus Public Foundation has been active in supporting and promoting learning outcomes approach since 2009 though a series of workshops. These workshops have had a number of different issues:

  • promoting a dialogue between the national development projects in the field of recognition (Hungarian NQF and validation);
  • supporting the experts in knowledge sharing, integrating of the results and applying a global perspective instead of separated sectors with ensuring the convenient forum for the formal and informal discussion;
  • promoting an expert network operation on the theme of recognition of learning outcomes;
  • circulating the information about new project results, papers and reports;
  • the role of EQF in EU's education policy and the added value of NQFs in developing national education systems;
  • the involvement of stakeholders and the institutional coordination in the development of NQF.
