The Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF) is the framework for creating and accrediting learning in England, Wales and Northern Ireland (Scotland had its own framework).
It ensures that qualifications are nationally and internationally recognised and can be compared along a set of common principles. In addition it enables employers to recognise the level of achievement and allows units gained by learners to be transferred to other relevant qualifications.
