EQF descriptors

TALQ will be focused on three European core profiles (based on ESCO occupational profiles) representing different levels of the macro-area of lighting technical professions of the performing arts, expressing qualifications in terms of knowledge, skills and competences. The process of defining the EQF level will be based on an expert group chosen by the stakeholders and will include a quantitative as well as a qualitative approach to reach consensus.

To compare the results of the national referencing process to EQF, European Commission provides frames for the following countries: Denmark, Estonia, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Malta, Netherlands, Slovenia, Wales, England & Northern Ireland, Scotland.  (Link to Find and Compare Qualifications Frameworks)

Compatibility with the Framework for Qualifications of the European Higher Education Area

The Framework for Qualifications of the European Higher Education Area provides descriptors for cycles. Each cycle descriptor offers a generic statement of typical expectations of achievements and abilities associated with qualifications that represent the end of that cycle.

  1. The descriptor for the higher education short cycle (within or linked to the first cycle), developed by the Joint Quality Initiative as part of the Bologna process, corresponds to the learning outcomes for EQF level 5.
  2. The descriptor for the first cycle in the Framework for Qualifications of the European Higher Education Area corresponds to the learning outcomes for EQF level 6.
  3. The descriptor for the second cycle in the Framework for Qualifications of the European Higher Education Area corresponds to the learning outcomes for EQF level 7.
  4. The descriptor for the third cycle in the Framework for Qualifications of the European Higher Education Area corresponds to the learning outcomes for EQF level 8.
