Sectoral Qualifications Framework for the Construction Industry (SQFC)

SQFC internet 1The construction sector occupies a special place in the Polish economy. According to numerous reports, the Polish construction market is the seventh largest in the European Union and one of the two fastest growing on the Old Continent. The Building Radar analytical platform suggests that by 2020, the size of the construction sector in Poland will grow by over 10%, achieving the highest growth in Europe together with Portugal. The importance of this sector is also evidenced by the fact that construction companies are currently producing about 7.7% of GDP directly, while their indirect effects are generating an additional 9.6%.



Sectoral Qualifications Framework for DEVELOPMENT SERVICES (SQF DS)

Level descriptors are made up of individual components which, in turn, constitute compilations of related learning outcomes. A component of a PQF level descriptor is a general statement pertaining to the knowledge, skills or social competence required for a qualification, an element which is part of the entire description of a given level. Therefore, the components of the SQF DS level descriptors must comply with two threshold conditions: they should be sufficiently general (generic) to refer to the qualifications of a given level functioning in the development services sector and, at the same time, they should take into account only those learning outcomes that are specific and essential from the point of view of activity in the sector.

BanksBanks: we look forward to implementation of our framework
“Banks have seized the opportunity presented by development of the Sectoral Qualifications Framework for Banking and we are now hungry for more and look forward to its implementation,” admits Mariola Szymańska-Koszczyc of the Warsaw Banking Institute, the substantive manager of the SQFB project. It was the first sectoral framework designed in Poland – for the banking sector, whose community was enthusiastically contributing to its creation. The framework will become an element of the Polish and the European Qualifications Framework, which will enormously enhance mobility on this labour market.


Sectoral Qualifications Framework: Telecommunications

Sectoral Qualifications Framework for TOURISM (SQFT)

TourismThe Sectoral Qualifications Framework for Tourism is one of the largest. As the sector is complex and diverse, it comprises four sub-frameworks describing other levels and qualifications. Its authors have emphasised that numerous other sub-frameworks will be required for subsequent areas. “Our framework is entirely different from those set up for the banking or sports area, for example. People tend to believe that a sector is no different from an industry, but there are multi-industry sectors out there, tourism being one of them. This is how we ended up with a framework consisting of four sub-frameworks,” says Professor Hanna Zawistowska of the Chair of Tourism of the Warsaw School of Economics, leader of the Sectoral Qualifications Framework for Tourism development project.
