AQF Framework – Programs and Course description and certification policy
Australian Qualification Framework (AQF)
The Australian Qualification Framework (AQF) was introduced in 1995 to underpin the national system of qualifications in Australia encompassing higher education, vocational education (VET) and schools.
The AQF is the national policy for regulated qualifications in Australian education and training incorporating qualifications from each education and training sector into a single comprehensive national qualifications framework.
The AQF Framework (2nd Edition) details the AQF type specifications from SSCE, CI – CIV and Diploma to Doctoral Degree level criteria and qualification type descriptors (page 11).
Refer to detailed information for Certificate II on pages 29-31 and/or Certificate III on pages 32-34.
