Develeopment of LQF
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 (2013-2019)
LQF / EQF level reference in higher education certificates was launched in 2013, but in vocational education certificates - from 2017.
