The Malta’s Qualifications Framework (NQF) gives a national identity in Malta’s educational world as well as provides international recognition within the European Union/Community and beyond.
After researching the national frameworks of an international selection of countries, Malta’s Qualifications Council has concluded that an 8-level framework, with a set of features and characteristics to foster trust and recognition, and bench marked to the European Qualifications Framework (EQF) (PDF), represents the best option for Malta’s NQF. This responds to Legal Notice 347 / 2005 (PDF) and addresses the National Reform Programme.
Malta’s Qualifications Framework takes the existing qualifications currently being issued by local education and training institutions and superimposes them on eight different levels.
