The AQF is the national policy for regulated qualifications in Australian education and training. It incorporates the qualifications from each education and training sector into a single comprehensive national qualifications framework. The AQF was introduced in 1995 to underpin the national system of qualifications in Australia encompassing higher education, vocational education and training and schools.
The AQF Second Edition provides the complete set of AQF policies and objectives, and information about the governing and monitoring arrangements for the AQF.
