The Ministry of Education and Science of Georgia and The National Center for Educational Quality Enhancement, with the financial support of the Erasmus+ programme, hosted the events of the Thematic Peer Group A on Qualifications Framework (TPG A on QF) of the Bologna Process, which was attended by representatives of the Ministry of Education and Science of Georgia and other state agencies responsible for the development of the higher education system, higher education experts, and representatives of 25 countries participating in the Bologna Process.
During the two-day meeting, the participants engaged in discussions regarding the self-certification mechanism of the Bologna Process. Successful implementation of the mentioned process serves as confirmation that a country’s higher education system aligns with the European Higher Education Area (EHEA) standards. Additionally, they discussed the progress made by the Group and outlined the further steps.
Since 2021, Georgia has jointly chaired the Thematic Peer Group A on Qualifications Framework (TPG A on QF) of the Bologna Process along with Austria and Latvia.
The Group’s primary aim is to promote the implementation of the main commitments and recommendations of the European Higher Education Area (EHEA) on a national level, and propose policy recommendations for the working structures of the Bologna Process.
Georgia is represented in this group by the National Center for Educational Quality Enhancement. The Group comprises 28 member states of the Bologna Process, as well as European institutions, including the European Commission, the Council of Europe, the European Students’ Union and the European Union of Higher Education Institutions.
