The Croatian Qualifications FrameworkÊ Register

The Croatian Qualifications FrameworkÊ Register

The Croatian Qualifications Framework is a reform instrument for
regulating the system of qualifications at all levels in the Republic of
Croatia through qualifications standards based on learning
outcomes and following the needs of the labour market, individuals
and society.
Since the central element of the CROQF are the learning outcomes,
and not the way in which they were acquired, the CROQF sets basis
for the development ofÊrecognitionÊof prior learning (RPL), or in
other words, enables the development
ofÊrecognitionÊandÊvalidationÊof non-formal andÊinformal learning,
along with the compulsory introduction ofÊquality assuranceÊsystem
and clear quality assessment procedures.
The placement of qualifications acquired in Croatia at respective
levels determine their relation but it also enables the linking of
Croatian qualifications' levels to the levels of the European
Qualifications Framework and the levels of the Qualifications
framework of the European Higher Education Area thus enabling the
visibility of qualifications acquired in Croatia on Croatian and the
European labour market.
The CROQF introduces qualifications standards. While the same
qualification can be acquired at different educational institutions
and through different educational programmes, there are certain
standards in terms of defined learning outcomes that a qualification
needs to have. Educational programmes need to be in line with the
qualifications standards which would mean that they lead to the
acquirement of learning outcomes that are defined by a respective qualification standard.
Apart from the qualifications standards, the CROQF
introducesÊoccupational standardsÊas well. An occupational standard
is a document which contains clearly defined competencies required
for a certain occupation. It is created through a clearly prescribed
methodology and collected data by which the competencies for a
certain occupation have been defined and analysed.
