On 16th January EuropeActive attended a meeting with Ireland Active, Sport Coaching Ireland and the European Confederation of outdoor Employers (EC-OE) to discuss the way forward for sectoral (international) qualifications in Ireland. Transparent qualifications are gaining importance in the EU. With increased labour market mobility, the demand for an “international” qualification increases. The European Qualifications Framework (EQF) is a useful tool to make qualifications understood by employers and employees. In order to be included in the EQF, a sectoral qualification has to be referenced against national qualifications frameworks and the Irish NQF might become one of the first examples.
