What is the National Qualifications Framework (NQF)

The National Qualification Framework (NQF) is the document that has been implemented to bring training and education together into a single national system. The NQF has made it easier for learners to obtain a form of a qualification by means of attending either formal or informal training or by means of recognition of prior learning (RPL) and through experience.
It was brought about to:

    *Allow learners to enter the education and training system that previously were unable to.
    *Improve the quality of education and training in South Africa.
    *Open up learning and work opportunities for those who were treated unfairly in the past because of their race, disability or gender.
    *Enable learners to develop their full potential.
