International conference “Upper levels of qualifications frameworks: Should we include professional qualifications?” in Riga (23.10.2012)

On 23 October 2012 in Riga, an international conference “Upper levels of qualifications frameworks: Should we include professional qualifications?” was held. The event is arranged by the Academic Information Centre – Latvian National Coordination Point. The conference was aimed at promoting discussion about the possibilities opening national qualifications frameworks’ levels 5-8 since, at present, in Latvia only higher education qualifications are placed on these levels.

The conference was organized in terms of the European Commission project “Activities of the EQF National Coordination Points with a view to implement the EQF at national level”.
