Relevance of Sector and International Qualifications and Frameworks to the EQF
Start date: 01 Aug 2016, End date: 31 Jul 2018 PROJECT  FINISHED 

The representative sector organisations of EuropeActive and EC-OE recognise that there are no real or imaginary boundaries for workers or organisations in active leisure. They will go where there are the best opportunities for learning, employment and for business development, and the sector is growing at a rate of 3-4% per annum. The objective of the action will be to identify the key components of a process that will be needed for consideration of the criteria and attributes to build the relationship of an international sectoral qualifications system or framework to the EQF. Close contact with officers from DG EMPL, EACEA, Cedefop and Member States will maintained.Already at a sectoral level, the main actors are fully integrated with innovation and the development of possibilities. Experts from the sector and other experts in VET and the EQF will cooperate in the action. In this regard, and with a special focus on developing standards, qualifications and structures at a pan-European level this project will use the current sector qualification framework for active leisure (in part developed through ESCO referencing) to:Propose how a sector/international qualification framework could be related to the EQF. This will include identifying the conditions and characteristics that will be needed by a sector considering referencing and its relevance of its qualifications and/or framework to the EQF. This also addresses the key issue of transferability.Quantify and qualify the criteria required, and the way that they would have to be applied to the process, and such that they will embed convincing and plausible quality assurance criteria.Explain how a sectoral qualifications system/framework needs to establish a body for the demonstration of good governance, and to gain its validation from employers, employees, VET experts, accreditation bodies and other stakeholders in their sector.
