The Polish Qualifications Framework

The modernization of Polish qualifications initiated with the enactment of the Act of 22 December 2015 on the Integrated Qualifications System is based on the adoption of common principles governing the qualifications operating in different areas. The integrated system consists of elements that already function in Polish society and its economy, as well as new instruments, to effectively integrate the entire system.

Its most significant elements are the Polish Qualifications Framework (PQF) and the Integrated Qualifications Register (IQR), which is a compendium of all qualifications included in the integrated system. These qualifications are also assigned a level in the Polish Qualifications Framework (PQF level).

The final version of the PQF is, therefore, the result of work carried out by many people over seven years. Such a long period was due to the need to develop solutions that took into account the specificity of the Polish qualifications system and the experiences of representatives from the worlds of education and the labour market. This enables the PQF to constitute a good basis for determining qualifications’ levels in a system where they can be attained in both the formal and non-formal education systems, and as the result of informal learning.
