- What do they call their nearest qualification to mine?
- Will my qualification get me into college or a job?
- Will I get some recognition for the qualifications I have?
- What kind of job or course can I apply for with my current qualification?
Similarly, if you recruiting people from another country in Ireland and the UK? - you may be interested in the answer to these questions
- How do I know what a qualification from another country means in terms of level?
- Which national qualification should I compare this qualification to?
- Who do I go to for more detailed advice about the content and level of qualifications?
The 'comparing qualifications' tool helps you explore these questions. You can click on any of the qualifications in the table to view more information about it. (Click again to hide the information box, or click the close icon in the info-box toolbar). You can also click on the names of levels and frameworks to view more information about them. It is also possible to use the 'Hide' buttons to put away columns you re not interested in (a new link will appear near the top of the page for showing that column again). We hope you find using the tool helpful. However, once you have used the tool you may have other issues about 'comparing qualifications'. First, the tool just looks at current qualifications. This raises the question of what is proposed in the future, particularly in relation to broader national developments and the development of the European Qualifications Framework. For this reason, we have created brief commentaries on the separate national developments on qualifications and in relation to the EQF: see following links for further information on qualifications developments in England; Wales; Northern Ireland; Scotland; and Ireland in relation to the European Qualifications Framework.
