Australian Qualifications Framework

The Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF) establishes the quality of Australian qualifications.

The AQF is the national policy for regulated qualifications in the Australian education and training system. It incorporates the qualifications from each education and training sector into a single comprehensive national qualifications framework. The AQF was first introduced in 1995 to underpin the national system of qualifications in Australia encompassing higher education, vocational education and training and schools.

The AQF website contains information, newsletters and the AQF 2nd Edition which provides the complete set of AQF policies and objectives and information about the governing and monitoring arrangements for the AQF.
