Qualifications Framework of Jamaica
Each Qualification on the National Qualifications Framework of Jamaica (NQF-J) describes what a learner needs to know, or what they must be able to do. It is generally agreed that the achievement of learners can be recognised in a number of contexts, and their knowledge and skills will be transferable between qualifications and education and training providers. The Qualification Titles will allow for comparability and facilitate their understanding, as well as improved regional and international recognition of the Qualifications offered in Jamaica.
The Qualification Titles in the NQF-J consist of Degrees, Diplomas and Certificates. These are further elaborated below:
