The National Register of Qualifications
The National Register of Qualifications is a publicly accessible register that contains descriptions of qualifications distinguished and verified in Slovakia. Its aim is to create a unified and transparent system based on the premise that the skills, knowledge and competences needed to obtain a qualification can be acquired through various paths of education and learning.
The mainstay of the National Register of Qualifications is qualification cards in which the public can find what are called qualification and assessment standards. The National Register of Qualifications allows employers to submit their needs and requirements for learning outcomes while offering educators and professionals in the field of education assistance in creating the content of educational programmes so that graduates are better able to meet the needs of practice.
