About the projects

krkThe Educational Reasearch Institute completed the second stage of the project entilted “The development of terms of reference for the implementation of the National Qualifications Framework and the National Qualifications Register for lifelong learning”. The project is prolonged until 30 June, 2015.

The basic aims of this project remain the same:
  • to systematise qualifications, understood as learning outcomes confirmed by an examination,
  • to develop the basic foundation of the national qualifications system, including quality assurance standards for the qualifications and the validation of competences acquired through various forms of education, as well as the design of an institution to manage the national qualifications system,
  • to implement a portal for stakeholders focusing on employers, employees and learners, presenting the qualifications available in Poland and how they can be achieved.

The project is accompanied by two suplementary projects entitled:
Developing the national qualifications system – organising and institiutionalising the Integrated Qualifications Register  which aims are to:
  • prepare procedures before the implementation of the Integrated Qualifications Register and regulations in the field of validation, quality assurance and certification in non-formal, vocational and higher education,
  • increase the consciousnes and knowlegde among the stakeholders.

„Developing the national qualifications system – pilot implementation of the national qualifications system and its promotional campaign” - within this project a partnership agreement between the IBE and the Regional Labour Office in Cracow was signed in December, 2013, establishing cooperation concerning the procedures, tools and channels of communication and legal restrictions necessary to ensure a well-functioning register.

Within  the three projects the IBE will still conduct the public debate and invite its social partners to exchange opinions and good practices, suggest ideas and express reservations about the qualifications system.

The projects will also continue a promotional campaigne via different means of communication e.g. the media, the Internet, Facebook and Youtube, national and international conferences, study visits, workshops and new e-learning activities.
