Standards for People and Places

Standards are crucial for our sector as they establish consistent guidelines, ensuring quality and safety. They foster trust, promote efficiency, and drive industry growth and innovation. EuropeActive's Standards are developed by the Professional Standards Committee through 18 years of collaboration with 200+ experts; these standards define occupational roles and their essential skills. Accessible to accredited providers and EuropeActive members, they aim to align with the European Qualification Framework (EQF) and national frameworks. Contact us for details on these evolving standards and their application to professional qualifications.
