How to hand in a request for the mapping of a qualification?

Since 2016 the NQF-mapping process in Austria has a legal basis and it is possible to map qualifications to one of eight NQF-levels.

It is a mapping of qualifications at a system level, it´s not a mapping of individual purchased education attainments. If you are a qualification provider you are able to hand in a request for the mapping of a qualification at the National Coordination Point (NCP). For that your qualification has to be NQF-compatible (see the checklist) und you have to use the official style sheet. The style sheet includes four information fields where you have to present various descriptions and general data.

At the moment the NCP is reworking the NQF-Manual, the style sheet for the request for the mapping of a qualification was already revised and is valid from the 1st of Januaty 2019. The old version must be used by the end of the year. Here on the right column you will find both versions as well as in the download area.

If you want to hand in a request for the mapping of a qualification the NCP can made a word document available. Please contact us by e-mail: nqr@oead.at
