The European Qualifications Framework (EQF) sees the future of professional competences and skills embedded in a major European quality development. This means, that in line with the National Qualifications Framework (NQF), the individual professional qualifications must be presented accordingly.
An important consequence of a uniform framework formation lies in the importance of a reliable allocation of competencies and skills in the respective professional branches, which reflect the level of training. It is crucial that all forms of education and training are recorded consistently. Formal education is meant here, as it happens in the classic school education, as well as the professional education, which we know from the proven form of the dual system.
It can thus be formulated as a uniform goal that the education and training paths can be clearly structured and assigned to the eight possible levels.
This should happen here for the professional branch and the craft painting and coating technology.
It is a question of assigning the master qualification to level six of the National Qualifications Framework.
