Employees of the Qualifications Development Department of the National Center for Educational Quality Enhancement participated in an online working meeting with a view to share experiences related to the development of the existing qualifications system in Georgia with the representatives of the higher education system of San Marino.
The involvement of the Georgian side in the meeting was initiated by the working group of the San Marino Bologna process, created in 2021. The aim of the group is to support San Marino in joining the Bologna process. At the request of the inviting party, the staff of the Center shared with foreign colleagues the activities carried out in the direction of introducing the updated national qualifications framework and study fields classifier, as well as the planned future steps in the direction of determining the compliance of the national qualifications framework with the European qualifications frameworks.
Because Georgia has been chairing the Thematic Peer Group on the National Qualifications Framework of the Bologna process (TPG A on QF) since 2021, during the meeting, San Marino representatives were informed about the work carried out by the mentioned thematic working group, which is related to the preparation of recommendations on the self-certification mechanism of the National Qualifications Framework.
