The Classification of the Latvian Education includes Latvian qualifications framework levels

The regulation was developed for comparing the Classification of the Latvian Education with the International Standard Classification of Education (ISCED-F 2013), as well as regulation defines the levels of the Latvian Qualifications Framework (LQF) in accordance with the descriptions of knowledge, skills and competences.
