National Skill Qualification Framework

NSQF organizes qualifications according to a series of levels of knowledge, skills and aptitude. These levels are defined in terms of learning outcomes which a learner must possess regardless of whether they were acquired through formal, non-formal or informal learning.

NSQF is a nationally integrated education and competency based skill framework that will provide for multiple pathways, horizontal as well as vertical, across education subsystems (school education, higher and technical education) and training sector. This will enable a person to acquire desired competency levels, transit to the job market and, at an opportune time, return for acquiring additional skills to further upgrade their competencies.
