The referencing process of qualifications to EQF should cover all education stages and forms, and all levels of professional qualifications, all types and forms of education (formal, non-formal). In order to elaborate the Latvian Qualifications Framework and perform the referencing process in a successive and meaningful way, in Latvia it is planned in two phases.
Phase I (2009-2011)
The LQF comprising formal Latvian qualifications was established and it was referenced to the EQF. The revised and updated Latvian Self-Assessment Report “Referencing of the Latvian Education System to the EQF for Lifelong Learning and the QF-EHEA” ( LV EN) was officially presented during the meeting of the EQF Advisory Group in October 2011 in Brussels.
Phase II (2013-2015)
In 2016 the Academic Information Centre carries out a study on the development of the LQF. In 2017 a new Self-Assessment Report will be prepared.
After the amendments to laws and regulations the EQF level will be indicated in all certificates.
