WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
The Integrated Qualification System – IQS – is a systemic solution aimed at increasing the level of human capital in Poland by describing, organising and collecting various qualifications in one register. The IQS makes it possible to attain qualifications and verify competences on the Polish and international labour markets.
The Integrated Qualifications Register – IQR – is a public database of all qualifications included in the Integrated Qualifications System. You can find the full list of qualifications, their descriptions and the knowledge and skills required of persons who want to attain them at www.rejestr.kwalifikacje.gov.pl
The PQF, or the Polish Qualifications Framework, is one of the most important tools of the IQS. It describes the hierarchy of levels of qualifications. Each qualification included in the IQS has an assigned Polish Qualifications Framework level, enabling them to be compared to each other and referenced to qualifications functioning in other European countries.
