    Qualifications frameworks are seen as a policy tool to achieve the raising of skills levels, reforming education & training systems and improving qualifications systems.  The research about the impact of the qualifications frameworks is insufficient. 

    It is difficult to understand why countries are investing resources in a mechanism which is under-researched.

    In South Africa the NQF was introduced in 1995, almost 17 years ago. The South African Qualification’s Authority has been commissioned to control the national qualifications framework.

    The NQF aims to create a standardized system on a national level.  Currently it does not meet this aim. 

    Job seekers and employers  are often confused by these NQF levels.  It is a battle to connect a previously achieved qualification on the NQF.

    It is really confusing as most companies still believe in Diplomas and Degrees without considering NQF aligned programmes.
